300sdl Turbo Removal- Wastegate stuck open

So, my symptoms are that the wastegate is stuck open, ie. no low rpm power at all, to the point where if I am going up an incline from dead stop I can't actually get to a higher rpm for normal power and go nowhere.

Fuel system flushed
Boost sensor/lines, cleaned, checked, changed, bypassed- no difference
Injectors replaced
Filters replaced
Egr plugged
Cat bypassed with straight pipe
New air filter
Trap Ox replaced
No play in turbo fan, turns smoothly

So- now I am removing turbo to check and clean the wastegate. I have removed the egr, the trap ox replacement pipe and am a bit stuck. I have read that I should take off the exhaust manifold and turbo at the same time, but the turbo is in the way of the nuts so is there some other way or some fancy method I am not thinking of??
