bad news ! Undid my cat which was pretty stiff and hard to do, took the gas converter out of the way which was extremely tedious and then started undoing the header studs only to realise the pipe and the end of the headers goes over the top of the bottom stud and you need like a shallow socket to get in there....which i dont have ! So had to put everything back and well thats a few hours wasted ! So might just wait till some cheap pacemaker's come along and get them, but dont know what to do with my Flame Proof Paint !

Really? I did my AU with a spanner, a bit annoying but was done in 5 minutes. You're talking about where the headers bolt to the cat right?
