removing exhaust manifolds and up pipes
ok i discovered the other day that where my uppipe bolts to the exhaust manifold the bolt has rusted and broken loose. it has started to leak and i cant get the bolt out of the manifold because it is seized by the rust. also my exhaust manifold bolts are either rounded off or seized. i have tried heating it with a torch but cant get them to break loose. how is everyone getting the manifolds off? can i just cut the heads off and reuse the manifold if its in good shape?
also with up pipes i was going to replace them, has anyone made their own set of bellowed up pipes? really hate to spend $450 for them if i could get parts and make my own set. any help would be great!
