EGR Blockers, broken bolt

Hey guys,
Went to put on my blocker plates today and the right bolt on the exhaust portion of the EGR pipe broke off. The bolt was 1/2-3/4 of the way out when it broke. Spent a handful of hours today trying to get the bolt out. It's loose in the threads, but it won't progress any further loosening. About 1/4 inch is sticking up and out of the hole. Not a whole lot of room to work. Can't really get a drill down in there. I don't have the tools or expertise to really do much of anything. I put some silicon on the H&S plate with the EGT sensor in it and bolted it down with the 1 remaining bolt expecting to be able to take it to a nearby shop where they can remove it for me. Will I be able to drive it to the shop like this? Or will there be too much pressure and break the other bolt etc? Suggestions?

There shouldn't be really any pressure you'd have to worry about. Just snug fit the other bolt on, and drive it like that to get the other bolt removed.

Pull up EBP on the h and s display that will be the pressure that is on it.
Get a 110 welder and put a nut over the bolt, than weld the nut on it.
Cover the manifold and other parts to keep debris contained.
Hope this helps.
FWIW there was a member on here last week that complained he blew his blocker plate off because one of the bolts was not tight.

I had the same luck doing my plates, a welder plus a couple washers and nuts did the trick.

What are yall using to remove the bolts? Ratchet or impact?
I have broke too many bolts with a ratchet learning my lesson a long time ago. After reading about this issue I used my baby impact. I will say I bumped them in forward a bit then went to revers and had no issues.

How the heck do you even get in there to weld a nut on. I just rounded one of mine off today while trying to remove.

I couldn't get it off. I took it up the street to a guy who did everything he could to get it out. He finally ended up drilling it out.

I thought about that too but do not see how I would ever get a drill in there as its not a straight shot.

He had to take part of the intake manifold off to get a straight shot.
