One other thing I know you will run into is the turbo bracket that bolts the turbo to the engine. It will be hard to fit back on so be patient. Some guys leave it off but my guess Ferdinand put it there for a good reason. Since you are not replacing the turbo you might be able to loosen it without taking the bolts out. It is unlikely that the headers will fit the turbo and all of the exhaust outlets without loosening the bracket. Also be sure you have the new oil lines to replace the old ones that will not fit with headers. I agree with everyone above but I tried to turn my old exhaust nuts before using a penetrant, and they came right off. I know I was lucky but a simple turn with moderate pressure might yeild the same results for you. The key word is "Moderate".
