Yes the EGR cooler is still on. I am only installing the block off plates. I did have anti-seize on the bolts as I was putting them back in. I was reusing the old bolts which is my fault and should have known better and was using the swivel due to the plastic upper intake. I am sure the bolt will back right out as it was going back in and has anti-seize on it I just don't have the tools here to do it. I am taking it to the shop around the corner from my house tomorrow anyway for another issue so while it is there I am just going to have them take it out. I have since ordered an extractor kit so I have it. I was at fault I knew better so I guess I will chalk this up to a learning experience and pay the price. I am still glad I did most of the work myself and it went relatively easy until I made the mistake. Thanks for all the suggestions they have helped a great deal.

all the advice on here is pretty solid. I recommend you don't try and ez out. Just keep slowly drilling it out and using a small punch tap out the piece and vacuum or shop air to remove. Don't worry you didn't make a mistake, I would say 1 in 4 of those bolts break off like yours did. I happened to me. 3 drill bits later I managed to knock was was left of the old bolt and re tap the threads. That plate doesn't need another of torque so use new bolts and I would remove the EGR cooler at this point to give you more access. It's not must more work.

It broke going in not coming out. Besides I think he took it in.

The wrong was not using new bolts.

The 2 in the manifold break all the time. If it breaks coming out then an easy out would probably break off too. That's why you stop if it feels springy at all.

Ford master tech told me that he heats the manifold with a brazing tip, if they don't come out then it's easy out, if that breaks then it gets a new manifold. When new goes in its dripping with never-seize. Never reuse the bolts. Just tight with a 1/4" ratchet or box wrench.

What size are these bolts? I just had a PO42E code come up and if I cant figure out what the problem is looks like I may have to make this a off road race truck so I want to be ready for anything that may have when I start taking it apart

I had them break off and Im pretty sure the hole is a 6mm x 1.00 pitch. I ended up removing the upper and lower intake and just drilled and tapped with 1/4 x 20 and bought new bolts.
