T-stat change advice

Subject car is a '91 coupe quattro with a 3B engine.
I want to replace the T-stat as the engine temps
are a little low as read by VAG-COM block 000 (hovers
in mid 180s vs. spec of 185-205) and radiator gets
warm immediately after starting.
Looking at the engine, I don't see how to get at
it without taking off the intake manifold.  Is there
a magic way to do this, or just bite the bullet and
pull the IM?  The coupe engine bay is a little more
cramped than the 200, the radiator is just a few
inches from the IM.  If pulling the IM is the
recommended course I can justify it better by also
replacing the MFTS and after-run sensor.  Any other
