    I did it the same way. I disconnected everything off the Turbo Inlet then just ripped it out. I got the Perrin TI so it's flexible. If you got a hard TI, this won't work. You will need to take the Intake Manifold off.

    is it hard to reconnect all the hoses and is it possible to reconnect them in the wrong place or would u have to be an idiot to do that?

    no its not hard to recconect the hoses i do suggest gettin some kind of lube because if you got the perrin ti you need to put the bungs in the ti but do that after you get it into place(i really dont know what those little things are called) but no you shouldnt put the hoses back in the wrong place its pretty simple and youll remember where they came from so you shouldnt mix them up
