Default Can the uppipe be removed from the top with turbo removed?

I am replacing my turbo tomorrow and was wondering if the uppipe can be removed from the top with the turbo removed. Thanks

If the turbo is out, pretty much the only thing holding it on are the bolts to the exhaust manifold and the two supports at the top. Unless there is some special difference with clearances between your model and mine, I had no issues from the top.

Easiest way it to take the engine mounts loose and jack the engine up should be able to pull the up-pipe up by rotating it as you pull it past the subframe and engine. It could also go out the bottom, but I tend to find out the top preferred.

Thanks. I don't have much clearance with the drive-up ramps so it is easier to take it out from the top once the turbo is removed if it is possible.
