I use the longest sawzall blades I can find , like 10-12" long and more than one. I also use a really big pry bar to bend the pinch weld/push the firewall back a little. You also need time, the old one will take longer to get out than it takes to install the new one, at least in my experiences. You will have to make at least 2 cuts, but probably 3. Cut it as far up as you can from underneath. Then you will have to cut it on the curve where comes off of the turbo and probably once more below that. You will have to kind of twist the old one out and twist the new one in. This is all from memory, but thats about how I did it. Not really as bad as some say, it isn't easy, but by no means hard, just take your time.
