The stove pipe is a little tricky to get loose, gotta hold your tongue just right. The charge air tube that snaps into the compressor housing can also be a bit finicky to get loose.
I'd consider the EGR cooler while you are in there.
Any how to's on taking the subframe out? I dont' really want to do that and have to get an alignment and all that afterward.

Need any special tools to pull the passenger side axle? Or just under the flange and pull it out basically?

What is the stove pipe?

EGR cooler is still in good condition so I'm going to fill the flapper rod void with high temp jb weld for an extra seal while i have it out.

Can the coolant lines be pinched enough to not drain the entire system getting the egr out?
