Couldn't tell you... See if the nuts thread to that bolt, make sure that if they do thread, they thread easily. If they do, reuse them... No sense in doing more work than is necessary

well i couldn't reuse them because after taking one of the nuts off i noticed some of the threads were messed up. so i decided to just use the new bolts that came with the exhaust.

soo, after some time and constant banging... they eventually popped out.

i must say it was a PITA, but whatever... :p

I have been thinking of getting an exhaust for my FG2 and have also wondered if I am going to run into this problem.How much trouble would it be just to take the cat off and use a vice or something to press the bolts out?I wouldnt bang on the cat because you could mess up the cat,and even worse you could do damage to the head as it is aluminum.
