Help please, stuck in the middle of Turbo Res delete mod

I thought there were some step by step instructions on here somewhere but I can't seem to find them now. Anyway, I have everything torn apart but can't get the OEM turbo silencer to come out. I took out the small screw on the top front, the one on the left (facing the front of the vehicle) that comes in from the side and the lower one that is waaay down in there and angled slightly downward. The hose is disconnected from the intercooler but I am stuck trying to get it out of the aluminum pipe coming from the turbo. Is there another screw somewhere that I am missing? Does it just pry out of the al. pipe? I can twist the kidney right and left and it feels totally loose but I just can't get it to come down out of that pipe. What am I doing wrong??

The top screw facing the front is the only thing holding the turbo out pipe and resonator together. There is an O ring in there too, that probably adding resistance. It should pull straight out.

Figured it out, after about an hour. The screw on top is what holds a large (the diameter of the pipe itself) "C" clip in place. The clip has to be pulled straight out (to the front of the vehicle) before the two pipes can be pulled apart. No "O" ring in mine.

NOW however I still have not found a place that I can drop it out of the vehicle. Skid plates are off but it just doesn't seem to fit anywhere along the bottom. What a PITA.

Yup, finally got it out. There was an O ring too, but it was the C clip that was preventing me from pulling it apart.
