If I can't get it out,..what exactly will the machinist do to succeed? Would he do/use something that would require the intake to be removed? Or would he do/use something, as is? Educate me....

I can use AAA to get it to my wrench free so that's not a cost factor...what would it cost for the wrench to do it (showing up with the car, as is...intake inplace....?

You're right gsmith, I should be keeping this in the back of my mind here...and thanks for pointing it out.

I hope the bieatch spins out too.......

any tool to make this happen, aside from vicegrips?
