LOL.. There a bit of a dog huh!
I have seen that top bolt make grown men cry. The easiest way to get the thing off is by using a few extension bars, and uni joints so you can undo it from the front of the manifold.
Also, while I was under your car I noticed that your +ve power lead to your starter was damaged. It had a split in it's insulation. You might want to change it or something.
CAUTION: Slippery When BOOSTING!
