Default Downpipe Question

The exhaust is going on my 02 Earnhardt SS. Can someone tell me are there bolts or studs that hold the downpipe to the manifold??

Thank you in advance.
John

I second that statement. And add, soaking them with something like PB Blaster may be a good thing to do ahead of time on that project.

Its all depending on how they bist loose from my experience. You can either get the nut to break loose and the stud stays on or the nut is so rusted that is unscrew the whole stud.

Very true, and where it attaches tho the back half of stock system has studs, mine snapped at that point, you can easily drive them out and replace with a nut and bolt

JUST my 2 cents; I had both headers and a dp. for the price you pay for a dp, mise well get Speed Daddy headers. Better gainz, better flow, happier engine, looks cool.
