Found out that a regular 10 MM socket or wrench has a bit of a tough time fitting on the "Front turbos" Coolant line nut, so instead of getting a thin walled socket a shaved down a 10MM 1/4" drive socket and it worked like a charm LOL!!

Here is a comparision of a regular socket and shaved socket going on the nut, as you can see a regular socket hits.

Some reference pics of the lines

Most people may know this but the tow hook can be used to lift the motor also...when on a jack it is pretty easy to lift the motor left and right to line up motor mounts by hand:

You can get this device if you want to support it from top with the tow hook:
