removing old flex conduit

Guys, I just pulled all the walls out of a room to put in new drywall. Underneath the old, I've found several long runs of very old thick metal flex conduit. The conduit and boxes it's connected to are all empty. I'd like to remove it all before i insulate and drywall, any tips for removal? It seems very strong and stiff. Below is a pic if it's helpful.

If you are sure it is not needed and is verified as dead, I would use a sawzall to cut it out.

Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.
