Yes, the air pump can be removed fairly easily with engine in place. It's a bit cramped in there, but not too difficult.
If you don't want the extra work (and mess) of removing the turbo scavenge pump, you will have to cut the toothed belt that drives the pump. I figured the belt was probably past it's use-by date anyway.
1988 Carrera - 3.6 engine (with ITBs, COPs, MS3X) and a whole set of turbo body panels waiting in the attic.
Day job ...
