So...when doing my race pipe a few years back, I may have done pretty much everything wrong. I didn't use anti-seize for the bolts, didn't use the stock spring bolts, and didn't exactly use gaskets.

Now I've got some stuck bolts and a leak that is freakin' loud, and my little electric impact wrench won't budge these at all. Would anyone be able to help with this? Will buy a 6 pack or something for your trouble

Yeck. Hoping it doesn't have to come to that. About to give it a second go in the garage, PB Blaster and a wrench again...no leverage is no fun, especially when nuts are welded in.

I don't have a welder...really wish I did though. Jealous of you guys that do though! Living in an apartment just sort of sucks in this regard

Oh, I know the feeling about an apartment!!! I would suggest going over to speedy muffler on east wash... They are decent and won't throw you under the bus for something like this type of thing
