gasket leak help

I have a water leak around the lower air intake. I am trying to figure out an easier way to get to it. I've taken off the upper and have loosened the fuel rail, but I can't get the stupid thing out without taking off the water pump...and that means pulling the pulley [which I despise...having eaten a couple of pulley installers and pulleys] and everything else [which is a pain.]

Last time I did this, I just pulled every single thing off everywhere...and it took me 3 summers to get it put back together.

Is there an easier way to get this done? Why is that black tube hard pressed into the water pump? Are they all like that?
