I noticed quite a few people broke their bolts. Y is that? Are you guys tightening the bolts too much? Or are they bolted on too tight and the force of trying to loosen them is causing the breaking? I'm planning on doing this soon and don't wanna bust 'em bolts!

i drove my car for 11 months before i tried to remove the axleback, and it was on pretty tight. I could only imagine how hard it may be if the car was 2+ years old.

Did anyone of you start the car without the axle back in place? (video?)
Just wondering how loud it will be if I go with a simple straight pipe.
