It is a bit of a PITA - but so are leaks.
I did it via this pic - made up a unit.
But a simpler way - if you have the plenum off is to bung the intake butterfly and pressurise via another hole. I use a compressor.
What I'm really saying is that it is a bit of a guess that it is an injector seal - it could be several options down there. If you are going to have to do this much mucking around, hoping to find an injector leaking, you may as well go the distance and find all leaks - or find that it is not an injector after putting it all back together and having to do it again.
You can get your hand down that side with interccoler intact - at least to most places - to feel if leaking.
So it may be worth trying the approach as in pic first.
Personally, I doubt an injector would be leaking enough to cause problem unless it was completely loose - which is unlikely as it is held tight by the fuel line too. More likely the injector block/inlet manifold.
