Default Removing Exhaust Manifold

I did the search and found this thread but its from 2011.

How am I supposed to remove the exhaust manifold?!

Does anyone have an easier way of moving the manifold from the head. Im doing a head/gasket and only working with hand tools and would prefer to just move the exhaust away far enough to pull the head.

I have the top exhaust manifold bolts out but cant seem to see the lower bolts. I appreciate all of the help this site provided so far. I am a member of many different types of car forums and this is by far one of the better forums in regard to responses and help.

My suggestion would be to loosen the clamp on the turbo to exahast manifold. Unbolt the exhaust from the manifold. Four bolts. And pull head and manifold together. There may be a support bracket that would need in end unbolted. Been awhile. Just let the turbo hang from the hoses and stuff.

Thank you! I must say I have never in my life worked on a more difficult car. Its impossible to get the heat shield off without removing the exhaust brace and removing the exhaust brace with the stupid heat shield. I have literally beat the piss out of the front fender with a ratchet because of the stupid way the heat shield was designed. Leave it to Chrysler to make a heat shield that has a whole in the center for a bracket to pass through.
