That bolt is threaded like every other on the car, no special or reverse threaded nonsense. You are correct however that it is torqued very high, it really depends on whether it was ever taken off or not and who retorqued it. Some people have had trouble taking it off with huge extensions over there already huge breaker bar. I was able to get mine off using just a 2 foot breaker bar..and im a pretty slim guy.

Is the engine out of the car? Do you have access to a very good impact wrench? I think that would be one of the only chances of getting that out without a flywheel lock.

For the record, i retorqued mine to 150lbs using my torque wrench, that was the highest setting. I then went back with the breaker bar and turned it a few degrees more by hand.
