They were quoting me like +3000 when we thought that was the problem but it wasn’t. They were telling me they had to take the turbo off and a lot of times the bolts break bla bla bla. 95% of the shops out there are a much of crooks that change parts on our expense and don’t even know if that part is the problem. It’s is a pricey job though

The raising of the engine works well. And saves time and take broken turbo bolts out of the equation.

Interesting. So are we talking flopping the fan blade forward away from the fan drive, or removing coolant tank, fan ring and fan?

Should have mentioned ! ( MP8 )This method has been tried and worked for us so far on GU chassis none of the above needs removing just the turbo drain and a few hose clamps and brackets beneath the turbo! lifting the engine high enough for the cooler to clear the frame and shock bracket and bottom of the turbo!As for a CX/CH  haven't done or seen it done so can't say will post more when its tried As mentioned lots of shit in the way fan shroud coolant tank bla bla bla ! so time will tell if we get to try another chassis will post !Others here have obviously tried it I guess it must work for those as well not sure !

I believe before you go to all the trouble to raise the engine high enough to remove the egr cooler that you can remove the egr valve without breaking bolts or stripping threads in the manifold. If that happens (which happens a lot)then you might as well remove the turbo and so forth.

Yes, if I'm doing a valve and cooler, I'm going to go ahead and pull the turbo.

Quite honestly its not that much trouble in this model of truck to raise the engine  But I agree ,if you have an idea your  going to have to  replace the u pipe or going anywhere near that EGR valve we all know what that leads too! By all means go the long way around ! Just offering up an alternate method that can work under the right circumstances! its worth a go! you can save (your self), your boss, /your customer / time and money thrown at labor and parts in some situations !
