I have taken off my entire midpipe and the cancan and also attempted to beat the can off with a rubber mallet, as well as trying to twist the can off. I was able to get the can to twist a little bit, but not even near a full 180 degrees. The reason i want to get the can off is so that i can make a shorty exhaust, but I just cannot get the exhaust can off. Any ideas? I don't want to beat the can too hard and dent it up. Thanks for the help guys!
