[DML] Re: DMCH's Performance Exhaust



Bolting the new stuff on is the easy part. Getting the old stuff off 
could be a challange. Depending on rusty exhaust studs and nuts. 
When I did mine,I replaced all the manifold studs and nuts. I got 
those from Rob Grady, along with his one-piece exhaust gaskets the 
studs are expensive though but in my opinion worth the trouble. One 
of the best tools I have found is a set of metric GEARWRENCHES brand 
name. In addition to a small socket set with wobble type extensions. 
they allow for slight misalignment to the fastener. There may be 
some studs that unscrew from the head instead of the nut coming off. 
Thats ok if you plan in replacing them. Removing the old studs are 
fairly easy by taking two nuts and doubling them to each other 
creating a jam setup. It usually works best if you back the stud out 
using the inside nut. Sometimes the stud will be so tight that the 
jammed nuts can turn on the stud. In that case what usually works 
for me is to put a wrench on each nut staggered far enough apart 
that I can apply squeeze pressure with one hand and rotate the whole 
setup at once. 
 
Removing the crossover pipe could be troublesome if you are unable 
to get at all the Cat. studs. One is kind of hinden and I don't 
remember how I did that one. I think it was with a few 3/8 
extentions. but I'm not sure. Overall it is fairly straight forward 
to switch the system. baring in mind a possible glitch now and then. 
you should not have to much trouble. Famous last words:-)
