Anyone know the best way to remove the rubber exhaust hangers from the stock exhaust? Maybe a special remover or just soapy water? I've removed them before on another vehicle but it was a pain-in-the-ass!
Any help would be appreciated.

To reply to my own post I found a rather easy way to take it off. Make a very soapy water solution and spray it on the hanger and rubber from both sides. Use some Utility Pliers to press against the tip of the hanger and pull the rubber of the tip. That's the hardest part is getting it started and from there you should be able to use your figures and some grunt to get them off. And now I have my Magnaflow exhaust installed :D

WD-40 and pliers. spray them down then use the pliers to yank them off.

+1. I've used WD40 every time, but I've never even needed pliers.

Yep, just have a can of WD40 handy, spray all the applicable bolts and then spray the hangers while you're under there.

Before you slap on a magnaflow/slow check the CFM. MY dynomax on my I4 gave me not only a new sound but more gas mileage. Note take off the resonator. If your into pretty get a mag but if you want power go dyno.

Well, the 1-2 whp potential difference probably isn't enough for anyone to worry about.
