Default Impact driver ??

Well I am still getting ready to install my H pipe and if I was to spray a **** load of PB blaster and let it sit overnight do you think that I can get that passenger side bolt off with my impact driver? That things will torque at 75 ft. lbs. I think that I can get it off cause those things are amazing. what do you guys think?

well I figured if I can get enough extention then I should be fine right? cause there is no way you will get to it with just the impact gun. Those little things have so much power for what they are. I've taken lug nuts off my dads jeep with it before so I figure if I can get to the bolt I should be able to get it off.

I do it all the time with a mid-lenght impact socket, ( home made ), universal and impact gun if its a tight one, otherwise just a breaker bar. I wouldn't use an impact driver--I assume your talking about the one you whack with a hammer--because the manifold is cast iron and could break the ear off, good luck.
