Exhaust manifold bolt broken

My '03 needs a new turbo Y-pipe bad (leaking drivers flex joint). While tackling that, I plan on installing an EGR delete up-pipe. I noticed that I have a broken exhaust manifold bolt on the passenger side (front most bolt on the bottom of the manifold). It has slight exhaust residue leaking from that area. I figured this would be a good time to just remove the manifold and replace ALL of the bolts and install a new gasket. Has anyone had to extract broken manifold bolts from there 6.0, and if so did it come out okay with an easy-out? How hard will the remaing bolts come out? The truck has 157,000 miles on it. Thanks.
