Im changin out the exhaust manifold in my truck, the old one was broken in half, and i am having the damndest time. anybody else done this before? tips would be good. i have the old one out. mostly. the other half is still stuck to the pipe. and those bolts will not come out no matter what i do. its frustrating. also, 3 bolts broke while i was removing it and i cant get a freakin drill in there to extract whats left. im sure if i remove the wheel well ill be able to access it, but i cant figure that out either. anyone done that? i love how loud my truck is now, but #1, i dont want the sound up front drowning out my music, and #2 i dont like breathing exhaust and having to drive with the window down while its freezing so that i dont get "sleepy" all of a sudden.
