Just ordered one off amazon. Got enough torque on it to tighten up the massive nut

Well, usually that big nut is really stuck. So you need something to lock flywheel good. And massive wrench, or long extension. I usually put engine to wooden pallet and strap it on it hard, so it wont move. Impact wrencesh usually doesent have enough "mass" to get that nut to move

Is there another cat in the middle of the exhaust also?

Just dropped the subframe off for sand blasting.

Going to paint it with a light gray 2pac, make things look cleaner underneath and help me identify if and where leaks are coming from. I would go for white but that's very pretentious
