Did you get the nut splitter on all 6 barrel nuts? What nut splitter do you have? I have the one from Northern Tool.
I had nothing special, just a bog standard splitter. I did not remove all nuts with the splitter but I think I did once I had the idea to use one as I did snap one stud off flush with the stock headers

I recently used similair tactics on some oil lines on my 3.2 carrera, I sawed into the nuts with a dremel using a disc. It made a tremendous difference in getting them undone.

I fitted my new headers with A2 stainless steel nuts and washers, my thinking was that if I needed to get them off again I will just split them so the more brittle the better Hope my theory is right...
