    Do I need to remove stock exhaust to pull tranny or is there a trick?

    When I had mine rebuilt, i didn't completely remove it, but I unbolted it from the manifolds and just lowered it down out of the way to make it easier.

    I had to remove mine on the blazer to get the tranny out. Make sure you heat the nuts with a propane torch or something before you try to take them off the manifold studs or it really gets to be a pain in the butt!!

    maybe thats a difference between a burb and blazer...all i had to do with my burb is just lower the stock y-pipe down to the ground and push it out of the way, no cutting what so ever. Maybe the length has something to do with it /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
