Great write up +1I done this job about 3 months ago. You need to remove the DP before you remove the manifold.
Apply WD40 or penetrating oil to all nuts and studs before hand, Dont forget the turbo support bolts underneath
Heres how I done the turbo swap...
Remove front strut brace and refit the strut top nuts (dont forget this!!) or your shocks/dampers will fall out if you jack up the car.
Remove top boost pipe
Remove air intake pipe and airbox from turbo
Go under car
Remove down pipe!!!
Undo bolts from turbo suport brakets where they bolt to turbo (not engine)
You will need the long wobbly extension and muscle power here. (lube it all up first)
Undo the 12mm bolt on the oil drain support P clip (bolted to one of the turbo support brackets.
Remove oil drain bolt from engine block where return goes back into engine. Leave oil drain pipe in place for now
Go back uptop (under the hood)
Undo Compressor housing support braket from front of turbo and engine block next to gearbox bellhousing bolt.
Remove the water pipes one by the front suport bracket you have just removed and the other on thermostat housing.
Get your self on top of the engine looking down the back now.
Undo the four 14mm hex blots/studs that hold turbo to manifold (I can see in your photo they are still fitted)
with a mid length extension 14mm socket and ratchet. remove all the manifold to head nuts.
Wriggle out the manifold
Now you can see the turbo
Remove the oil feed banjo bolt
Reach under and lift out the oil drain pipe from block this is all that should be supporting the turbo at this time
Lift out the turbo..
Remove and swap the turbo elbow oil drain pipe and water pipes ect ect
Then rebuild/install it all in the reverse order
REMEMBER GET EVERY THING LUBED UP FIRST AND YOU WILL NEED A BREAKER BAR ON SOME OF THE BOLTS 100%
Hope that helped?
