First time I did the ur-quattro I studied the problem for half an hour
and then removed the fuel injection system.

Second time I did it the 'official' way, by pulling the front right
headlight and doing it through there.

Third time I did it the way I did it the first time.  It's not much
slower than the second way, you get a good chance to give the air
box a real cleanout, and popping one bolt lets you lift the air box
out and check all the exhaust studs with a mirror.
