N54 Belt Replacement - need to remove intake piping?

Went to change my belt, tensioner and idler pulleys last night thinking it would be a quick job based on an N52 write up I found. Unfortunately it appears the intake piping completely blocks most of the space, and I was only able to replace the tensioner, not the belt or pulleys, without removing it in the time I had.

Anyone have experience with this? Does the intake piping really need to be removed or are there some tips for working around it? If it does need to be removed, any DIYs?
