Good time to order some shorties maybe. It's gonna be tough to do at this point because of clearance.

Probably have to remove mani or tow to a shop unfortunately.

with no room to work you may have to pull the engine, drill a hole in the broken bolts, use heat and easy out bits

Well this might sound like a back woods mechanic type way of fixin it but i ended up cutting the bolts off even with the manifold and welding a bolt to where the old bolts use to be

Apply direct heat to bolts, Spray Kroil Oil on them, repeat. If bolt snaps off, rent a tap and die set and do it the right way. Kit comes with extractor, bits, taps, die.
