Thanks for your response. Let me ask a more specific question. Your diagram showed the turbo charger off the pedestal, but I can't get my turbo charger off the pedestal. The bolts are underneath that holds it on.

I have found 3 bolts that hold the turbo charger pedestal--2 on the front and 1 on the left back. I think there should be another one, because it won't budge. Can you help.

Again, I really appreciate this.
