if you have the nuts off, you shoud be able to pull the down pipe directly off. what exactly do you plan to cut? not the studs, right? cuz then how do you get em out to put in new ones, while on the car?

didnt you have an eng mount prob, is that causing the engine to be out of place maybe?

sawsall it is.. i just thought the grinder would have been better..

with that cut and seperated i should be able to then lower the one end of the catco side of the pipe enough to finally get it off...

before you cut, would you mind posting pics, i just dont want to see you cut something that will just cause you a head ache later.

Good luck. And make sure you have a good sharp blade if you are cutting through the factory stainless pipe.

ohh, ok. then you will have enough angle to pull the down pipe off.

i thought you were gonna cut the studs going into the manifold.

Go to a muffler shop and ask them for a piece of pipe bumped up to 2 1/4" ID. They should sell you a small piece.

2.5" on both ends? Call all the auto parts stores around. You may have to buy a 2.5" pipe and cut your own.

If that fails, start calling muffler shops.
