It all depends on how you are going to remove it. The best way that might get you out of moving the exhaust is to get a chain whip cutter. Any Advanac e Auto or Auto Zone has them on a loaner basis and they cut through ehhast like hot butter. If you are unbolting it, get some PB Blaster which is better than WD40 and let is saok for as long as possible and spray it on and wipe it off as much as possible. It will make all the difference in the world to get the hardware off.
