DIY K04 Install Notes/Helpful Tips

So brute force prevailed. Removed what bolts I could from the heatshield and then fatigued the shield until it broke off. I'll deal with the bolt once the turbo is off and can access more freely and replace heatshield. Tried a torx and bigger hex hammered in to no success.

Got a screw extraction kit coming tomorrow so will give that a pop.

Got the 5 manifold bolts loosened and with the heat shield out the way. Can see and with relative ease get to the downpipe studs with a socket, so things are looking up!

So the heatshield bolt is connected to the manifold not the head?

No, it's in the head.

DIY K04 Install Notes/Helpful Tips

So that plug.

Different position on TSI. It's between cylinder 3 and 4 around the same height as the pic above.

Once the the turbo was off, I was able to get the plug out. I could see what it may have been taken out at some point in the past and was already a bit rounded off which prevent the hex from fully seating. Was able to hammer in a hex and was fine. Hard to check when everything is in the way.

hammering in an XZN bit does the job too!

That is a TSI and it is between cylinder 3 & 4. It's a picture of the back of the engine with a mirror.

Are these just basic locking plyers? The eBay link you posted is down.

^^ for those and the bolt holding the banjo on the fluid line to the turbo it's best to use a triple square set with some kind of hex pattern on the bit just before the socket end. What I did was to put the M(something) into the bolt, then used a 10mm crescent wrench to torque the M(something) bit.

Edit: like so:

Nice! I have the this kit per this thread: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

so that should definitely work. What other tricks you got for this install!?
Ordered my long reach ball head hex socket set for the 6mm...
Just from reading everything I feel like when the heat shield comes off it should just rain beer from all cylinders in celebration.

EDIT. Holy crap...I see you're in SW Michigan. Where at? I'm 20 minutes from the boarder.
