Default HELP Clocking A 14b Turbo

I was clocking my 14b today and I came across a Index pin on the compressor housing. I was just wondering how everone else got this out, did you drill it, sand it, pull it???? I'm just a little scaired because it right where the compressor seal goes and one little nick or screw up would mess up the whole thing. Anyway, here is a picture of what I'm talking about. Thanks for the help.

From what I've read, most say trim/grind it. There seems to be no consensus though. I'm trying to think who uses clocked 14b turbos. The TT Stealth/VR4 guys?

Anyway, best I could do, hope this helps:

They should just pop out with screwdriver. Same pins my 16g had. There's also a pin on the exhaust side.
