Re: Broken Exhaust Manifold Bolts
I have done this job before and is sucks bad!
I removed inner fender wells for room (I am a big guy and hate small spaces) and got the torches. Torch off all remaining nuts from the manifold the heat will actually help them come out of the aluminum head. Remove the manifold and the Y-Pipe of course and use a stud extractor on a ratchet to remove the studs. If you happen to have one break off flush with the head, then you will have to get a 90 degree angle drill and a good extracter.
