    Is the button-head allen that holds you inner baffles into the muffler body spot welded? Mine is, just wondering.

    Yes,
    but if u have used the exhausts for a while they might got "smoky" and is a bit hard, but it will eventually come out.

    Otherwise is very straightforward to draw them out...

    No.

    It will be a little hard to take off the db-killers the first time, but the bolts, on mine, are not welded.

    Just installed mine yesterday and they're spot-welded; for a minute I was wondering if my baffles were even removable. Good to know they are, although most seem to think it's too loud without them. Hell, I'll at least try it and see for myself. How much 'effort' does it take to break the bolts loose?

    Just a little snap thats all. Make wire with a hook to slide into the pipe to pop the silencers out. I grabed mine with a pair of needle nose pliars, they bend very easy, won't do that again. Fun sound but gets loud after awhile.
