I got my exhaust with the silencer already in, and i can't get it out for the life of me. I've taken out the three allen bolts that hold it in, and the thing won't budge. Any suggestions on how i can take it out. It is a removable silencer, it just came in the muffler.

Iy might have slightly rusted on. Try some penetrating spray around the edges, and see if that helps loosen it.

there are no more bolts... its an OBX B-3 Muffler, it came with a removable silencer in it, but its really stuck in there. I tried some wd-30 and it still didnt budge.

Try tapping it with a rubber mallet to loosen it. After it moves a little bit, wrap the silencer with an old tshirt or something and pull on it with a couple pliers. The tshirts will keep you from scratching the silencer and the pliers should give you a good enough grip to yank it out.

put some gas around the edges of the silencer...get a lighter...light it for a few seconds then put it out...the instant heat around it makes the tip around it expand then grab some vicegrips and pull like hell...not the best way to do it but ive known a few people in ur situation and that seemed to do the trick
