Getting ready to remove my turbo for an upgrade. GM Service Database says to drain coolant as the first step. Is this really necessary or simply a precaution?. I have just replaced the coolant and don't really want to do it again. From what I understand, there are no coolant lines (other than oil) running to the turbo or manifold.

Thought we did have coolant in our turbos...

yeah, I wouldn't think you would have to drain the whole system. probably a half a gallon should get the level low enough. just be sure and cap off the lines once you remove them so no debris gets inside.

On the upper line there is a rubber going to it. If you clamp it off with vice grips, that will prevent the system from draining.

True, just be careful when you clamp it.
Also if you put a bucket or pan underneath it you can minimize the mess and be able to reuse the fluid.
