Exhaust hardware is almost always a pain. An oxy-acetylene torch helps or something a couple cans of aerokroil/PB blaster/freeze off. Let us know how it sounds after!

TWO bolts which connects the stock exhaust manifolds to the Y pipe broke off when I installed my set... It will be royal pain if I ever go back to stock

It gives you more wiggle room. Then once you have the header on, re-install the studs as well as other hardware.
I didnt remove steering linkage or studs. Trick is to remove the bracket which bolts to the header flange on the bottom....

I got em in and just picked up a new o2 sensor.. Holy shit those things are expensive so I should be finished soon.. I guess the factory cross threaded the old sensor when they built my truck.. The threads on it were beyond repair

Might give this a try http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...e-one-fix.html

I meant to do it before I got sent to the sandbox but didn't so I can't you from personal experience if it works or not.
