I just ordered new exhaust gaskets to get rid of the small amount of popping that remains after the desmog. Anyone have any advice of removal of the old ones and installation of the new ones? Thanks

gasket removal

I used a 1/4" combination wrench with a rag wrapped around it. Put the open end of the wrench inside the intake catching the gasket. Tapping the wrench with a plastic hammer VERY GENTLY, with the rag against the outside edge of the intake it should pop out. To put in the new one put some (not much) grease on it to hold the gasket in place while you put the pipes on. The grease will burn off.
Good Luck

Anti seize on the acorns. Torque to 17 ft lbs. and recheck after a few miles. If you have after market exhaust, use a washer between the acorn and flange.
