Drive Side Y pipe removal

So the the turbo is out, so the only thing holding the y-pipe in is its connection to the manifold. I got the easy nut and bolt out, but am having a hell of a time with the one that is against the firewall. I have tried to get a 10mm wrench back there to stop it form spinning when im undoing the nut, but it is 2 big. So then I tried a midget 10mm wrench and thats to big. Does anyone have a trick for getting this last bolt out?

This is the same one that gave a friend and I a problem to. Your gonna need two people to help ya. You need a big extension with a 10mm and someone to put there hand down against the Y pipe to get the socket on the top of the bolt and hold it. To get to the 13mm we went through the fender to get to it. A deep 13mm socket with another long extensions should get to the bolt. Its gonna take some time and some stretching but you"ll get it. I really really hate that freakin bolt
