I can't speak for Simpply, but I am pretty sure he's tried everything.  Now,
for the most part, I think he just drops the subframe for turbo upgrades.

quickly. This also allows one to install a stronger (RS4, Spec, Southbend)
clutch, examine the turbo oil feed lines, and install stronger engine

Well there you go. Even he takes the engine out.

You do have to perform a 4 wheel alignment afterwards though. The rack and
the tie rod ends and whatnot aren't touched, but the subframe itself is
slotted and can make a huge difference in any direction.
