it's just nuts & bolts here. Not rocket science.
A turbo is nothing more than a vacuum cleaner.. a air pump.. that's all it is in the end. 2 bearings & 2 seals, that's it. A little common sense and you got this under control.
Just watch your oil lines in and out. Make 100% sure nothing is blocking that oil flow. Lack of oil is the #1 reason turbos fail in the first place. The drain back line is the one to really watch. Not all have a radiator cooling lines. If yours does, check them also for blockage.
Mark the fan housings before you remove them so you get them back in the right place.
That's about it. You got this.
