o/r x install..stripped bolt

Whatsup guys, got a problem here..went to install my upr o/r x, hit all the bolts with PBblaster, broke them all free but the final passenger side manifold bolt, the bottom one that requires the swivel and all..well I stripped the bolt and got completely stuck..tightened everything back up and went on with my day...any easy way to remove that stripped bolt?

Matco Tools sells a bolt extractor socket set. It is awesome and you won't have to worry about rounding off bolts. Get it.

I'm surprised i didn't mangle any of my bolts when i swapped my midpipe, even with 140k they still came out fine (they were a PITA, but came out fine)

How is that set? I've heard good and bad things about it, I also hear you pretty much got 1 shot with an extractor, you mess it up your pretty much screwed..I do not want to bring it to a shop unless I HAVE to, come inspection I have to swap back to stock H, so I'd love to do it in the comfort of my driveway so I can throw the stock H in my garage and should be push and pull come September inspection time

Luck! None of mine were bad at all except the final passenger side bottoms manifold bolt, it's not 100% rounded because I stopped after I knew I stripped it. So hopefully an extractor will work, but I need a deep socket 3/8 15mm deep socket, pretty sure from what I saw of the craftsmans set that there not deep sockets, Has to be deep to get over the stud
