Good tips, thanks. It snowed again last night, so no real desire to crawl around on the driveway till the nice spring weather eventually comes around, so the project is on hold.

I have been advised to wait until it breaks off because it will be a lot easier to install it.

Otherwise the Sawzall will be the "off" and the 1/2" socket (fits tighter than 13 mm) will be the "on". At this time there are no issues with the sounds, so it would be nice to delay the install until we are out of salt season.

That'll do it

Don't over torque the nuts on the new clamp though! (torque should be ~30ft/lbs)

30ft/lbs!?!?! I definitely over torque all the exhaust clamp then lol. I always fear them popping off under hard acceleration... had it happen to me once at the drag strip on my old R32. Clamp came off where the downpipe met the stock headers.... and holy crap was that thing just insanely loud. I had to drive home for 2-3 hours with the exhaust that way.... with the windows open at night in the cold because the drone was just unbearable.

The VW clamp doesn't take that much to seal. If you overtighten it actually, it WILL leak because the "ears" will bend on it & deform the clamp

Stronger band clamps, for aftermarket exhaust, are only 40-45ft/lbs btw/fwiw
