The real weight is in that air pump (crazy heavy!), then the other plumbing and valves are nice to loose too.
That was my original plan too. Cut the feed end of the spider, crimp it closed and braze the crimp shut. When it crumbled in my hands the plan changed. It had been leaking exhaust gases, which was bypassing the turbo for God knows how long.

If anyone need to add the spider back for, say, to meet Cali emissions, it should be easy to get a used one for cheap, IMO.
