no, you cant take it off. The only thing I can think of is getting a larger pulley to run less boost, you might save some on fuel economy, though I have never seen someone try it. I figure if you can go smaller then you can go bigger too right? If the price of gas is too much maybe you need to sell it and move to an NA motor.
