im not sure which is better but wouldnt you want the front end on rhino ramps instead of backing it up cause the downpipe is in the front of the car. anyways if it was me i would use jacks.

I used ramps on the front and jack stands on the back. of course I was doing a TBE all at the same time.

well i am doing the entire turbo back all at the same time. I was planning on just having the backend elevated because i figured if i have the frontend elevated than i might not have enough room to get to my downpipe, heatshield etc. Wouldnt it be easier if the front was lower to the ground?

dont know, we replaced my Uppipe at the same time so we had to have the front up in the air. We just left it there until we were done. It wasnt to difficult with it up.

You will be better of with the jack stand in the front because you will have to be able to access the DP from the top and the bottom, so you might have to lift and lower it a few times. Ramp the rear

My turbo's fixed and a lot better =)

All i used was 2 stands on the front for my TBE. The backend was sitting on the ground and I had no issues.
