turbo bolt (innermost) - 200q20v

Well, it's like a catch22.  You need to remove the turbo from the
downpipe(which I am trying to do) to remove the turbo from the manifold(also
what I am trying to do) as I am swapping turbos.

It would be easier to remove the turbo from the manifold if I could remove
the downpipe from the turbo, as the nut is held captive at the same location
as the one I'm fighting with.

Of course all of this would be easy with the engine out of the car.

The engineers really made this a doozy.
