Exhaust hosing still won't come off

I've been trying for days to pull the exhaust hosting off my pad I've tried everything I welded and bent a 15mm wrench on a extension tried using a crows foot. Still nothing does anyone have any tips of other ways to get the two bottom bolts off the manifold ?

Exhaust housing as in the turbo? What's your pad?
Exhaust manifold is different from the housing.

If you bend the wrench at the right angle it will work, just can't full turns on it. I had my turbo off in less than an hour and I used the bent wrench. Are you having problems breaking the nuts loose? Did you spray them with PB blaster or anything?

I had to tap on the end of the wrench to break them loose, but it will work. This is how I do it-

The biggest key is to soak them for a couple days before trying. Now that it sat with the PB on there, they will come off. Once you make your 'turbo wrench' out of a cut off 15 mm, you can get it on there and I use a pry bar against it and the cast part of the turbo. Once they move a touch, the nuts come right off

I bought some high temp anti seize and put on the studs and the bolts, so if it ever has to come off again it won't be so bad. Just a thought since you have it apart. The stuff I bought is good up to 2400 degrees, not sure how hot it really gets, but I don't think it gets near that hot.
