Not too familiar with the Omni engine bay. But I know it's tight. Have you been trying to get it from the top or bottom? I'd suggest the bottom. And getting your hand on a set of line wrenches, or some crows feet style. They're life savers in tight spots.

Ahother trick is to remove the FRONT subframe bolts and then losten the rears about half way off, but not enough that the steering shaft comes apart, that makes it a bit harder to put it back like it was. Its a good time saver for sure...if you dont have the tools mentioned above!

if you are replacing the line, just cut off the line and put a socket on it.

Ehh not much harder than a bigger car. It's easier to pull the head on all of them. If the turbo has enough miles to be bad it's probably time for a headgasket anyway.
