Hey guys , I really made big mistake , I didn't notice when this small gasket fell into intake , and i started engine.....long story
There was a knock noise , but it's once every 2-3 min , it's knocking hard ,but engine runs fine... no other strange noise.
Can i get this part out ? Or do you think it's already down in engine can't be taken out only if engine is open X_X

Thank you.

if its knocking then its already in the cylinder, i doubt you’ll get it out through the inlet port, if you keep running it theres a chance it may exit the exhaust port and enter the turbo while it’s spinning at high speed, then the bill goes up. I think you need the head off
