Exhaust Help

Just put on the new vance and hines exhaust but I ran into a few issues. I noticed a few threads around that explained the same issues so I wanted to see how common this was. After putting it on I noticed my brake pedal hits. I seen some have put washers in and also some suggested to bend the brake pedal bracket. Is this normal, or did I not install the the right pipe correctly?

Also what do you use to remove the studs from the manifold? I snapped one yesterday and I had extra manifold around and a stud that works but isn't the right one so I want to fix the one that I broke. Any suggestion?

Lots of this

And one of these (stud remover)

May need to add a little heat to expand the manifold and relieve pressure in the stud.

The brake pedal should clear without a problem. Did you take the pedal bracket off 1st to fit the pipe up? Studs you just gotta soak in WD-40 or PB blaster. Sorry I don't have an extra manifold for you.

No I didn't take the pedal off I just slipped it under it. I still had my original manifold around with the broken stud removed - yes two manifolds that I managed to snap the same stud. I don't recall how I got that broken stud out and the new stud I had gotten from the dealer wasn't the right seems a little longer. So right now I'm using the wrong stud and I'm thinking that's the issue. I'm going to see if I can take off the one good stud and use instead of the one the dealer gave me. Where can you get the stud remover?

Most hardware or some automotive stores would stock metric Manifold bolts....just math the threads & size up.

Did some more testing and it seems like the heat shield is whats causing it to hit. With that off no issues. I tried to tighten the sheild down but same thing.
