EGR tube removal

im trying to pull the upper intake malifold. the last thing i have is the EGR tube. the part where the metal tube connects to the manifold. so far its been a ***** to remove, and i dont like putting too much pressure on plastic parts. i got it disconnected from the other side, so the manifold is free to lift off, other then the tube coming off of it. i can twist it slightly, but it wont get any looser.

(on a side note, i think EGR is fukcing stupid, and it gets in the way of things, is there any benefit/hinderance to removing the system other then more space?)
