HELP PLEASE!!!!!

How in the #$@% do you get the down pipe off a 6.0 the quickest and easiest. I got mine off on my 7.3 no problem but im fighting this one bad. Ive tried twisting it in every direction and still can't get it. Im ready to sawsall it off up as far as i can and then i think i can get. Any help.

i put mine up on the drive up ramps and had just enough room to get it out, took a little smacking cause it was tight to the ground. But if you can get it up higher it would make it a lot easier just keep turning.

I cut mine off at the bend, the other option would be to take off the cross member.

Most people usually take a sawzall because of the crossmember! If you want to save it GOOD LUCK! If not do like Tim Taylor and fire up the power tools!!

i must be doing something wrong because i hacked it off already and the cross member no problem im even thinking it needs to be cut off up higher because i cant twist it enough to get it to drop. that bracket on the back of the motor seems to be the biggest issue

Quickest way is to take a sawzall from underneath infront of the crossmember and cut as high as you can on that sucker and then just wiggle it and rotate it out.
