I may have read this method on AW before, maybe not, can't recall much from that.
However I know for sure there's a fellow on AW, his handle is "SIMPLY" and is located in SoCal, has does turbo swap numerous times. He said he no longer needs to drop the engine, just undo the mounts and tilt the engine up a certain way and he can get to the turbos easily. Much quicker than any other known methods. I wish I live close to this guy ;-)
