it certainly is a PITA! 1 of the more simple ways to do it without removing the turbo is to lift the motor slightly. It really isnt "lets take a couple of hours and take care of it in the garage" type things.It is honestly not going to be a big gain. It was a big gain back when there was a cat in there. It would probably be one of the last mods I would do on the stock turbo. It is just enough of a PITA that I will save that for when I upgrade the turbo.
