in all honesty with removing the bracket above it and putting it back on I can change the mufflers out in under 30 minutes with just non-powered hand tools and a jack. don't let it intimidate you. OEM mufflers and GT500 mufflers suck since they are so big, but when i finally switched to borlas it was such an easy job.
