You can't loosen the bolts on the clamp?

Spray it all with the finest can of rustbuster you have (WD-40, Liquid Wrench, whatever) and try again. If all else fails at work we use the torch, but you probably don't have an oxy-acetylene torch lying around.

Do as Carson suggests but before putting a torch to the thing, try getting a long pipe or handle and couple it to theend of your wrench for more tourqe. I use the handle off of my hydraulic jack.

I know exactly what you mean those bolts do suck. Luckily I had a impact wrench. I guessing you don't use a wd-40 and use a breaker bar like they dicussed earlier. If that doesn't work put the wrench on the bolt get a mallet and tap it loose.

Hey thank you all guys i didnt get to see any of ur messages cuz rougly about 30 minutes after i typed it we fnially got them off. We used wd-40 and exactly what RafCarre12 said, good helpin, haha. Great minds think alot. And as far as it looks....
honeslty im a lil dissapointed, it hangs a lil lower than expected but it still is awesome. Not that huge sound that some hondas have but a VERY clean sounding purr. Gaind quite a bit of power too from what driving it for 10 minutes! overall i wish i had 4 hands so i could give it 4 thumbs UP!
