So I'm trying to remove my stock exhaust to install a Cobb catback, but the bolts to remove the stock exhaust from the downpipe seem to be a little rusted. I have 30k miles on my '14 ST, and from what I've seen the bolts should be 14mm. None of my 14mm wrenches or sockets fit on the bolts, and the 15mm is definitely too big. Any ideas on how to get the 14mm wrench to fit? Thanks for the help

Thank you I'll have to try that
PB blast all the bolts.

When you go to install your cobb exhaust, do yourself a favor and use Anti-seize paste on all the hardware. It will prevent the situation you are dealing with now. IF you ever plan on reverting to stock, or swapping downpipes, this move will make you dance for joy. I pretty much antiseize everything that doesnt get loc-tite. Simple insurance for the future.
