Removing exhaust flange from turbo

Hey guys, i am in the middle of doing a EBPV delete on my 03 7.3. Im stuck trying to remove the old exhaust flange from my stock turbo. any tricks or tips. im scared to wrench too hard on those little bolts, especially since they are 12pt. I soaked them in pb blaster but that hasn't done much. need this apart asap, i need my truck back on the road. thanks again!!

Don't worry about those little bolts they just take some effort to get off. Soak them in PB blaster a little more and wait a little. I only soaked mine for maybe 10 minutes and they came right out after putting some *** into it.
