    2014 VT auto: Cannot remove OEM rear downpipe bolts

    I even used my heavy duty impact gun and niether bolt/nut would budge. I haven't tried torching yet (I don't have one).

    I also noticed that it appears to be a odd shaped nut on a stud...on some youtube vids they always had to use two wrenches; one side being a bolt and the other a nut...mine is just on one side.

    Any thoughts?

    Might be some useful instruction from this post: https://www.velosterturbo.org/forum/...ion-elbow.html
    But yeah... the studs are notoriously prone to causing curse words when they either fail to move or break.

    Need to soak with good lubricant and use a better impact. They can get pretty rusty and seized up.
