Stuck Muffler

I want to experiment with my car and see waht it sounds like minus the muffler.
I loosened the front clamp and one bolt on the back clamp is rung off.

so both clamps were loose but the muffler wouldnt budge i sprayed both ends with liquid wrench. any tips on trying to get them loose?

Block of two by four and a good big hammer. Be ready to have difficulty reinstalling it. Use new muffler clamps and use plenty of anti-seize on the u bolt threads.

Eastwood sells a tool to remove the mufflers without damaging the pipe/muffler. I had a similar issue...

price depends on the size of your pipe

Loud you are wasting your time doing what youre doing youre just going to make trouble for when you go to put it back on not only fitting it but possible exaust leaks you might have afterwards.
If you have a welder you might be able to luck out

Just unhook it at the exhaust manifold, gaskets are only a couple bucks a piece.

Heres my truck with open headers,look at my other video for a soundclip of my homemade mufflers http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjT-CnMCY0U
