Yeah, if you were talking about the spyder... it is easy to remove.
Here is a tip. Use the 5/16th socket to loosen the upper hose clamp on the orange plenum boot on the left side, and then the same socket to loosen the lower hose clamp on the right plenum boot. Then use the same socket to remove the bind clamp on the front where it hooks to the turbo. You'll also have to remove the small boost line setup... one has a small red clamp on it and the other has a small 8mm bolt holding the bracket up.
The reason you remove the top left and the bottom right hose clamp is because it'll come out with just those two removed... it will leave one on the intake, and the other on the plenum. When you go to replace it, push the left side down on first and then the second one (right side) will slip into the boot that was left on the intake.
I do it this way and it goes right back on in seconds. Don't make the mistake I did the first time and take both boots completely off - you'll spend 20 minutes figuring out how to put them back on without loosing the clamping force.
