We spend probably four hours working on some of the bolts on my car with no luck in getting them to budge. We broke a few swivel heads and some 12/14mm sockets, so in the end we just called it and I will be dropping some money on a shop to do the install. My friend is pissed he could not do it, but in the end he did not want to get to that point where we are stuck with one header on & one off and we cannot move forward.

Currently calling around and getting price quotes from shops, but it seems many here are Monday through Friday shops so I will be picking one on Monday.

I do not know why they are so damn tight, but damn they do not want to come off. I have talked to Secret Service Auto in Houston and they gave me a price quote and said the earliest is Wednesday or Thursday. Going to wait till Monday since some shops I know are not open on the weekend, was hoping to get in Monday at the latest, but it may be longer now.

Were yall just using hand and arm strength and straight on socket? I was talking to a guy last night about cars. We got to talking about exhausts. He mentioned that he had to use a special tool for breaking the tight lugs off. Breaker bar or something.
Or rubber mallet?

700 ft/lb tq would not help??? Use a snake extender with the right socket, and get that mother right outa there. I guess you need to let the pro's at secret services step in and put those bad boys on. I told you about 3 weeks ago "Good luck getting those bolts off" I knew it would not be easy, but I wish you luck & hope to see these in action soon.

Funny, I have them all on my list, but Jtran & Awesome Z are closed on the weekends so I will be waiting till during the week to talk to them.
My friend is thinking of having another go at the headers maybe, he does not like to get beat and I do not blame him.

A few weeks ago I broke my hood prop clip and have been using a zip tie to keep it secure, today I bought hood struts instead of fixing just the plastic clip. The website says they are on back order, but hoping to get these ASAP.

lol sounds like my friend who installed an entire twin turbo system on my old g35 with only a Jack, stands and wrenches in his one car garage...took a lot of determination not to give up and let a shop do it easily..and friends are cheaper ; ) hahah
