i had to go to meineke and get them to remove the bolts i tried everything myself from a torch and wd40 to freaking cocacola.. couldnt get it...but after that its a breeze. get a sawzaw so you can cut the exhaust off right before the muffler, cuz you wont be able to get it out... i didnt do flex pipe yet... soon though, im going illegal too with a race header.. all youll need then is a flex then yer done iwht exhaust.

Well I live in California and their emissions laws suck so with a shorty header, cat pipe, flex pipe, and cat-back do you think I could still pass emissions?
