Default Water riser service replacement

So before anyone tells me to replumb the whole house ( I already know this😃&#128077, I'm wanting to at least get this old gate valve and crusty pipe out of here to see if my water pressure increases and do a small bit at a time...is this feasible? I'm thinking it will be a bit of a challenge to do more with the wife home in the evenings and weekends. Any suggestions? it's pvc from the meter to the base of the riser and pressure is at 45 lbs at the spigot above, a little low when the water company said my neighborhood is being delivered with 60-65 lbs. pressure is terrible at our new master shower which of course is all copper.

My experiences with the 'piece at a time' approach to plumbing almost always means you will be doing more and larger pieces than you planned to. Something always seems to break away from where you'd planned or will not quite work with the replacement.

Increasing pressure and flow at the beginning might just cause problems downstream, so if the best I could do is piecework, I'd start it at the other end and work back to here so I could be more certain that it would all hold till I got done. Then again you probably have better luck than I do
