Help EGR delete issue

So I decided to do my 2 hour EGR delete kit today. All was going well, drained coolant removed lines, removed plugs, removed short pipe, got 3 bolts loose in the longer pipe and hit a road block. I can not! get the rear most bolt out of the longer egr pipe where it goes into manifold. Ended up rounding it off a little bit so I tried a new socket etc... tried a socket that was supposed to help with rounded bolts and I got no wheres after 6 hours of dicking around. So Pissed off I was about ready to take a sledge hammer to it. Ended up putting the entire truck back together because I have to drive it tomorrow. Any recommendations or tips would be appreciated. At this point im freaking screwed! The bolt is not completely destroyed yet so thats why I stopped. I was going to just cut the bastard off and deal with it after everything was out of the way but I can even get in there with anything to do that. If I could just break it loose I would have been done with the job a half hour later. I don't even see how I could weld a nut on the top of it either there is just not room in there!

That's a serious kick in the ***!! I'm assuming the socket that was supposed to help with rounded bolts was a bolt extractor. If that didn't work you may have to find a way to jimmy your hands in there with a dremel to cut a slot in the head and use a flathead to loosen it or find a way to fit a welder in there.

I used a long extension and put it on my hammer style impact driver, smacked that driver with my mini sledge and it broke loose no problem. Make sure your sockets in good shape.
