Take a portable torch and heat the nuts. As they get hot they expand, breaking them loose. Sometimes you must heat them cherry red. Ive done this alot, works great. Just wear eye protection. Safety first!

Twofocused has the right idea. If they don't come off when you let the bolts soak for an hour in WD-40, get a torch from your local tool rental and heat those bolts up and you may be able to ket them off. Not sure if a small propane torch will work but you can try if you got one. Good luck.

do you have an impact wrench? that would be ALOT more sencible, or a breaker bar?

you put the socket on the impact wrench, since you dont know much about this ask your dad, then put the socket on the bolts and using the air supply that you should have hooked up to the impact, it should unbolt them for you

hah oh well a breaker bar works like a ratchet. w/ a long handle, so you can get more force on it

If all else fails, get an oxyacetylane torch and cut 'em off :). Just be careful where you aim if for some reason you want to keep your old (stock) system.

If you need help installing it man, I live fairly close. Jet let me know, we can probably get it done in like a half hour. I have all the tools here we would need.
