Ive been tempted to get the turbo upgrade from sxth element but it seems nearly impossible to remove the turbo from this car without dropping the whole engine and transmission...does anyone have any luck with this???

No you don't, just take the valve cover off and cover the valve area with some cardboard and pull the turbo out the top, intake side first.

Or that. When I was looking at it, it looked like it would have to be rocked forward a smidge to get it out. Good to know that it's as easy as pulling the valve cover.

Considering all the stuff on the valve cover and dealing with RTV, it's easier to just pull the RMM off and rock the engine as needed. Removing the RMM is a 5 minute job and doesn't require breaking any seals or resealing anything.

The VN Turbo and manifold are one piece so they have to come out together. To rock the engine forward, both upper and lower motor mounts need to be removed along with various other parts to include; FMIC Silicone pipes, hot and cold side pipes, Radiator Shroud, coolant pipes, downpipe, exhaust, various turbo pipes and hoses anlong with a quite a few other parts and this isn't all. This is job for a professional. You need to have access to special tools and the necessary equipment to do the job correctly. This is not a novice or amatuer mechanics DIY project, plain and simple.

However, this is only the beginning and a proper tune must be applied along with a, performance downpipe, FMIC, HPFP & LPFP, as a minimum.
