AAAGGHHH %&!@*!!

ok, I have lost it. I have now broken 4 EZOuts on this one bolt on my '03 turbo. It is one of the bolts to bolt the turbo to the pedestal, bought a recondition kit so have new bolts, but this one hole is all screwed up and getting the broken ezout pieces out is worse than drilling thru the bolt itself. Does anyone have any suggestions at where I could possibly take the turbo to have the remainder of the old bolt removed, and then probably retap the hole as it will be pretty screwed up? Just the type of shop I need to look for more than anything else.

yep, but alas, mi padre no longer has his drill press, and I don't have one either. All my buddies are clueless, and thus don't even have tools, they all come to me to fix their crap. trying to hold this thing and drill into it with my cordless has not been too fun. The broken ezouts are the worst part.

yep, been all over it with a torch, it would start to turn on me then 'snap' and another one breaks, problem is now, don't think there is enough bolt left to grab with an ezout once get this last broken ezout out of there.

wow, no kidding, that s.o.b. is stubborn. are you using a ez-out made by cobalt? I have tried all different brands with no luck, then i bought a cobalt brand ez-out, and it has worked like a charm. just an idea
