|Anything exhaust related usually has really stiff rusted bolts from the constant heat-up and cooldown. If I'm going to touch anything exhaust related, I always spray the bolts at least the day before with a high end penetrating fluid. Keep in mind it will smell a bit when the exhaust gets hot, but it's worth it if it makes it easier to get those bolts off.|

|bah i just let the car run for a while for the studs to get really hot, then put it on the lift, or floor jack or whatever your using, and slap an impact gun on there and they will come right out.|
--> always done em this way with no problems, of course if you try to take them out cold though they will probably break or just wont budge....heating them up first with a mildly sporty drive is the fastest way i've been able to get them out with.
Once the downpipe bolts / studs are out just put on the new gasket and slap the whole turbo back onto the car in 1 peice and hook up the rubber mounts http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif (best done with a friend to help hold up the exhaust
