I read that someone used an 8" extension and swivel to get them out.

I find frozen bolts are much easier to extract if you use PB Blaster. It is a spray penetrating fluid and it works. Soak the bolt/nuts as thoroughly as possible and let it sit for 30 mins. Spray it again and then try breaking it loose again. That made mine much easier to get out when I did my oil cooler.

My favorite tool is the 10mm ratcheting box end wrench for the front 2 bolts and the rear go over the down pipe and drop a socket and extension on it. Once its loose try to roll it out towards the passenger headlight. Be patient, I put a moving blanket on my passenger battery and kneel right up there.

PB Blaster, I think we used 2 universals and 3 extensions. We ended up twisting the hell out of a adapter though, had to go buy a new one. It's a pain in the ***.

I've never had any problem with just a 10mm and an extension.

I also use a ratchet and socket and PB Blaster to soak the bolts. To be honest, I have had more problems with v-band clamps than anything else. Keep with it and DON'T strip the bolt head. You will find that it will eventually come loose.

I removed the 3 bolts holding the turbo to the pedistal. Ratcheting 10mm and it was no problem. Then the pedistal is cake to take out.
