Easy to do..remove four nuts on headers each side, remove rear bolt on the hanger, and drop them..you can remove center pipe clamp and separate the two sides too. and do one at a time.

spray all the fasteners with pb blaster a little while before you try and crack em.

PB Blaster is the trick. I would spray all fasteners several times over a 24 hour period. I have used that stuff for years on bolts that I would have bet would snap off and they didn't!

When I have stuff that's really corroded and stuck, I will spray it every few hours with PB Blaster over the course of a day or two, and it never fails to work.

Speaking of this original post....
I pulled down the pipes-they did not have any gaskets in them-do you all use gaskets? I had already bought them and put them in.
Also, there is a hole, about the size of a pencil eraser, midway down the pipe-
Anyone ever have success repairing such a thing?

I have been using JB Weld high temp on my falling apart exhaust. I just want to get through the summer with it then replace it over the winter. So far it has held everywhere I have put it.

Put a sheet metal screw in it..coated with JB weld or epoxy or nothing...
