Not much is getting done. Noah was off at camp. My buddy Stu came by with a tool to saw the tail pipe, so it's gone. It's hot. I get under the car and my goggles fog in about 30 seconds.

The intake/exhaust manifold stubbornly clings to the engine. I'm not making progress with that. I'm also not sure about removing the gas tank. It's about time to call for help.

do you have your EV parts yet?
I would be willing in the near future to come over there one day and help gut the car I am good at taking things apart!

I had a similar problem with the exhaust manifold. Could not unbolt it from the engine block. What I ended up doing was cutting off the exhaust as close to the manifold as I could (used an angle grinder). I left the manifold attached to the engine. When the engine comes out the manifold will come with it.

Thanks. I'll give that a try.
