Sawzall is a very good start, just watch to make sure you don't cut something vital by accident. Start with a sharp metal blade, replace as necessary, let the saw do the work. Use full face protection and remember you only get one set of eyes.



: Easiest was my Mazada 929 replacement from the OEM
:
: Pure bolt off, bolt on.
:
: All of the American OEM kits I've done had to have some metal working tools/ability.
:
: All of the non OEM kits from after market have had much more work, but they did get in there after
: working them
:
: That was years ago and think with today's automate & robotic working against the OEM spec
: would have them much closer.
:
: Lots of anti-seize (alu filled) to both help slide things together and to rub into bare metal
: as the grease will burn off and leave the alu as a semi-plated coating.
:
: Shotpeen hammers, metal chisels and air tools also very handy.
:
: Just be ready with a plan B...aka...local muffler shop or mechanic
:
: Good luck
