What exhaust tool to remove pipes?

Hey all,
What exhaust tool or what is the best method/trick to removing a pipe from inside another pipe after it's been crimped on there?

I used my bushing removal method with a sawsall, but there's has to be something better/faster!!?????

Here was my method but worked
(Muffler was two months old so nearly brand new.)

Looks like you did a good job, I would just cut (sawsall, cut off wheel, torch) at the crimed seam, remove and replace. Looks like there is still some room to work with on the muffler. Honestly, there are some great exhaust shops where I live that do the work cheap, and offer a great warranty, I let them worry about it on my personal vehicles.

what you did, then use a tail pipe expander on an impact to straighten out the muffler

Ok, thanks for the input guys.

The tailpipe expander was a neat little tool, rented one from Advance and worked well.

If you use a band clamp like this one

you won't have this problem again.

As previously mentioned, a blowtorch works well in this situation.
When you heat it up real nice, hit it with some oil... right in the open crack where the pipes connect.
If you can manage to do it right (I have only been able to do it once in one try) then it will shock the inner pipe first, then you yank on it.
Again I have only done this once, and I can only guess what happened to cause it to come out so easily.
Must have been my lucky day.
