Exhaust

I'm installing new long tube headers on my 2009 GT. it says to remove the manifold studs. I've broken 2 sockets and stripped out 2 studs. Any ideas on how to remove them?

When you have to remove a stubborn bolt that has been seized by heat and 2 different types of metal, you'll understand. Only thing that's gonna remove those studs is an industrial oil.

He is doing the headers though, those will be a lot harder to get off because they are closer to the engine and will have been exposed to much more heat, which in turn will lock the bolts in more.
