Guys

After abit of advice...

Tried to take mid / y pipe yesterday in order to knock the cat out of it.. several of the allen bolts that connect to header pipes are rusted out so key just spins. Any ideas on how to easily remove mid pipe still ?

I cant believe kwak didn't use stainless in such a place... or maybe the bolts are stainless but just to soft to turn.

happened to me too mate :(

I heated up the bolts until they were glowing red hot and undid them with pliers - a bastid of a job but worth it in the end. Used stainless ones when i put it back together.

Get flames and poppin' noises - very tidy!
