    I'd spray some PB Blaster on them first and see if that works, if not, then I'd use the fire wrench.

    I'd just use a number 2 welding tip to heat 'em a little.

    If and when you get the pipe off, I'd replace it with an aftermarket stainless pipe if you can find one.

    I already have a SS pipe on it's way. $180 from Southpoint Radiator.

    Thats a given. The other pipes are already SS and I replaced them last week. I just didnt notice this until I was wiping down the oil pan, looking at anything that was leaking.
