    Holy **** Exhaust silencer removal!!

    What's your favorite method for removal??

    I removed mine the other night and, I had to be somewhat quiet, it was 3 in the morning so the sawzall or grinder wasn't an option.

    After a good hard hour and a lot of torch work I pried it out. Man what a son of bitch.....melted that thing in 3 different spots and used a 3 inch diameter 4 ft. long pipe to help!!!

    Anyways, job done.

    LOL... ya, I have all the great tools to cut it up, but I would have woke the woman on a work night!!! So I got out the torch and just heated up where the obstruction was....at one point I had half the intercooler mounting bracket unscrewed!!

    Yeah, the external intercooler on the X skis makes it a little tougher. Looks like you got yours out pretty much intact

    No need to remove all that just remove hoses to supercharger, TB and intercooler.

    Remove intercooler

    Then Remove TB if you do this it gives you that extra 2 to 3 inchs you need. Now it still will not come out real easy but its a lot easier then removing all the VTS.....

    i followed riva's instructions and had it out in 45 minutes. I made my own VTS tool by heating up a piece of PVC pipe and pressing it over the VTS nut and let it cool. Worked like a charm.
