Icon5 Need a little help

Im swapping out my stock header and exhaust, the Greddy kit came in today. I'm having a bear of a time getting the bolts out of the old header where the header meets the two pipes before the collector. The studs on the head were easy. There's a total of 5 bolts that are giving me headaches.. the three that attach the header to the "downpipe" and the two bracket bolts that attach the assembly to the block. Any tips on removal from those who have done this before?

Thanks in advance

Use some good lubricant and a breaker bar.

Re: Need a little help

i would be carful about using a breaker bar. you will need to use one for sure but do it really slow and work it back and forth gradually. odds are if you try and unthread it all the way right away you will snap a bolt or two. trust me... i've done it on exactly those bolts...
