Just had issues with the same thing on a holset. I put the whole turbo in the oven for 45 mintues, took it out then upside can of compressed air the center section. Came apart very easily after. Tried soaking/heating/Hammer and nothing worked before that.

I had the same issue. I soaked the seam with pb blaster for a couple days and then used a rubber mallet to rotate it. Then it came right off

Just for future reference this is how i take the exhaust housing out... I put a bolt on top of the turbo to exhuast housing bolt and as you loosen that bolt that other bolt will be pushed agaisnt the housing making the housing to go up... I use 2 and loosen them up evenly and constantly checking the turbine wheel to make sure it still spinning something i learn from justin over at the dsm forum...
