    Hey guys,

    I am changing out my exhaust from a flowmaster set up to magnaflow.

    Just checking that I need to cut the over axle pipes at the muffler in order to get this off the car? Thanks.

    Was it welded? If so, you will have to cut it some where. Are you trying to save it? If its just clamped and corroded you should be able to work the joints loose and disassemble it. Pictures?

    Dunno specifically about removing the Flowmasters. Might have to raise the car high, unbolt one end of the shocks, and lower the rear axle as far as possible to get the tailppipes out.

    I put the Magnaflow system on my red '66. It has 3 piece tailpipes. I did cut a few inches out of the over-the-axle pieces to tuck the tailpipes closer to the floor.
    I felt the mufflers were on the load side, so I replaced them with the Walker Dynomax's. That took considerable modification the the front pipes since the Walkers are longer.

    Thanks guys. I ended up cutting the pipes to get them out. They were welded. That was my first time removing exhaust.

    I used a Sawzall to cut. I don't plan to reuse the pipes.
