EGR bolts. Recommendations

All. I have a 2018 250 with about 50 k miles. Just fixed it up from a salvage and ran it for a few weeks to make sure all was well. Now I am pulling the egr off and ran into the dreaded EGR bolts issue. I cut the pipe as I saw someone online do so that I could get the cooler out of the way. I cannot even get the bolts to turn they just round off. Any ideas? Should I just bite the bullet and pull off the whole intake and then cut them off and try to drill them out? What have others done? Any suggestions are appreciated

Thanks.

Just an update. Ran to auto parts store and got twist sockets which I never tried before put a little heat on the manifold and I cant believe it but they came out. One took a little back and forth and more heat but they are out.

Nobody should round them. They either break off or break loose. And on an 18 it should break loose. Stop using autozone (cheap) 12 point sockets

Ive owned previous vehicles but I wont waste the forum space to list them, oh ya, and you dont care
