    Cut them off Adam. They look better shorter anyways...plus, when you remove them, you'll have holes in the tips. Just my thought.

    Get a penatrating fluid and soak em. Hang em from somthin with tips up. spray, spray and spray some more. Then try to get them to twist inside the header. That is what I did to get mine out.

    On mine I bent up around the bolt hole on the baffle with a screwdriver and stuck a piece of wire thru it then was able to pull on it. Not easy but eventually broke loose. You really need to remove them after every use if you dont want them in permanent or the will rust in. I didnt noticed any performance gain when I took them out so i just leave them in permanently now.

    They make a slide hammer with visegrips. Soak them for a few days with wd40 and then get them hot. Now slide hammer them.

    go to an auto parts store and get some pb blaster that stuff will loosen them up for sure way better than wd40 for this kinda stuff.
