DIY N63 550i turbo rebuild and oil return seal replacement

My 2011 550ix had a lot of oil in the valley between the exhausts, which was coming from a lot of different places. I replaced the oil return housing and gasket, and re-did the turbos at the same time.

Here is the original thread:

For those who want to do the same thing, here is my DIY:

I had a friend help me for some of it, but really just pulling the alternator was the only thing that required two people. That and putting the v-band clamps back on the turbos. What a pain. There must be some kind of trick to that.
