Cleaning EGR

SO today I went out and unplugged my EGR and loosened up all the bolts. The things doesnt not want to come out one bit. How are you guys pulling yours out to clean it. I heard that theres a gasket on it and not to ruin it so I didnt want to pry it off with a scrwdriver. Plus theres not that much room with the oil filter sitting there. Any suggestions

I grabbed it with a pair of channel locks and twisted it until it came out. It took a good bit of twisting but it finally gave in...
