Removing Old Drain/clean Out At Foundation Wall


I'm in the process of finishing a basement. there is what looks to be the old waste line going through the foundation wall, (probably to the old septic system) If i could remove the first section of pipe i would be able to cheat the dry wall enough to get it by and hide the pipe in the wall. it seems as if the fitting is rock solid. I don't know if it is epoxied or what. It is either steel or cast iron. Any ideas to help get the pipe out.

If I am successful in removing the pipe what can I use to cap the pipe flush to the end of the joint. I need every 1/8th inch I can get to get the dry wall by.

Can you get a C.I. snapper on it? If you can then snap it clean and put an expansion plug in it.

No don't snap on a bell. Take a grinding wheel in an angle grinder and cut it flush. Just be dam sure it's no longer connected or needed because once you go down this road it's tough sailing if you need to use it again.
