...I've taken the head off the block with the intake manifold still attached, the exhaust manifold still attached, and the turbocharger attached to the exhaust manifold! Requires two people, but working on the head on the bench is so much easier...
Indeed trying separate just the turbo from the exhaust manifold with everything in the engine bay is a painful job but it is doable... I've had totally seized bolts here and have enjoyed dremel-ing things apart....
Removing the exhaust manifold from the head is likely to break studs and in my opinion should only ever be done on the bench...
