Need help removing Turbo

Dropped the #30 torx into the valley of the lost and now have a stuck magnet in there too.

Is there a thread on removing the Turbo to get these parts out tomorrow

Is it that difficult?

the 6.0 valley isn't that bad to retrieve parts from and you really shouldn't have to pull the turbo to get anything out. (the 6.4 is a different story)

I'd be quicker to drive to sears and buy a new magnet tool (or several)

Would there be any harm in leaving the very strong magnet firmly attached to the valley?

Provided I can get the torx bit out with my dropped little stuff into forbidden areas tool?
