The likelyhood of the rear main blowing is almost none. I would leave it alone if theres no sign of leakage. As far as the rest of it you should have no problem. I recommend pulling the turbo, radiator, intercooler, all plumbing for the removal. I have done a few and this seems to be the easiest way.

Not always but might as well. If its off then for piece of mind replace them. They are cheap. The only reason for pulling the turbo is because it's a pain in the arse to get it past the cowl.
