Advice needed: DIY gone bad

I've posted this in the tech section as well.
Guys, I need your advice so I know what I'm in for:
I just purchased a performance muffler from another Pelicanite; I soaked the bolts on the studs from the turbo to the cat as I'll be removing the stock cat and muffler as one piece. After soaking for a couple of days in PB Blaster, all the bolts broke free no problem with just an open ended wrench. As I was loosening the upper rear bolt (not even a full turn yet) it started to tighten up......yup, I think the stud sheared off. I marked the end of the stud to be certain and it moves back and forth with the bolt. I don't want to go any further until I know how complicated this is going to get if I have to replace a stud and/or remove the turbo. Any suggestions?
