I just got in my Silverline 5" TB and I am currently in the process of trying to remove my stock exhaust. I'm having a problem trying to remove the band clamp at the turbo flange. Are there any tips or tricks on how to get it off? I have the nut loosened up but the clamp wont budge.

If you hit it with a rubber mallet, it will break it loose. Also, you can use a small flat blade screwdriver and try to pop it, but just don't bend the clamp flanges. After a while, they can be tough to get off. Hope that helps

Ball peen hammer would do best for removal and the install. Use the hammer to set it. tighten, tap, tighten, tap, tighten. This will get the best seal and won't stretch it.
