If its the same as mine it is bolted down by two fairly convenient bolts on both sides of the front of it. Mine may even be slightly more crowded with the EGR hoses and solenoids there. The wastegate solenoid bracket may also be held on by one of these bolts.

Make sure to take off the battery positive cables because a lot of current capable across those relay contacts.

My truck is a 1996, I have the neg. cable disconnected, & I have
the 2 power wires disconnected from the relay. I just don't know
how to remove the plug w/out braking the clip off.
