Default MUFFLER HELP

Is there a easy way of removing my huge muffler from the back of the 96 se to replace it with a nice flow master? I looked at it the other day and all I could think of was lobing it off.. please tell me this is not true!

There should be two bolts holding the ends of the muffler up, and then just the single pipe going in. Napa and other parts stores have an exhaust pipe cutter that looks like a pair of pliers with a bike type chain on it. Works great for cutting.

Well..the pipe in front of the muffler. Our exhaust systems are originally welded together to make one piece after the catalytic converter.
