before you go and do that put the car on jackstand run it and follow all the pipes with your hand not touching them, about an inch away and see if you feel any kind of air going across your hand. it's easy to tell if you have an exhaust leak because you will hear a 'ticking' sound

Yes, you will need the space and you might as well change the turbo gaskets at the same time. It's a pain in the azz. It took my mechanic and i 5 hrs to do it.
