turbo bolt (innermost) - 200q20v

I just did this on my turbo last weekend.

For the turbo-downpipe bolt which is closest to the engine on the bottom, 
use the open end of a stubby wrench.  Thread a nut and bolt together and put 
it in the box end of the stubby.  Use a bigger wrench or ratchet w/ 
appropriate socket to turn the bolt in the box end.

For reassembly, replace the nuts with small head M10's which use a 15mm 
wrench and not a 17.  This gives you more "turn" on the bolt before having 
to reposition the stubby.

For the turbo-em bolts, first remove the downpipe.  I used a thin-walled 
0-degree offset box end wrench to remove all these bolts without any issue.

Good luck.
