I've never had an issue removing the exhaust from my car, however I bought a used Berk muffler delete from someone and it came with the stock mid pipe. I was just gonna use the Berk pipe and the mid pipe that was already on the car, but separating the pipes I bought was a huge PITA. Bolts wouldn't turn at all and I thought they were seized. Used WD-40 and bought a propane torch - still BARELY worked, and not before stripping a nut and having to use an extractor, AND bending a Harbor Freight ratchet. The bolt threads were all messed up, crossed, etc. Not sure if that was due to the previous owner over tightening or cross threading the nut, or me trying to take it off.
