If you snap off even one you will need the jig. I would not recommend trying an easy out because you first have to drill a hole in the stud. thats normally not a problem when it's been broken off in a cast iron engine block or heads but these are aluminum which is softer than the stud. So the drill will deflect into the head and just make a mess and possibly ruin the head. Even if it was cast iron the best method I have always used was a cutting torch you just heat the broken stud with it until it turns cherry red the just touch the oxygen lever and the stud will melt and run out of the hole without damaging the threads. But that only works on cast iron, the block makes a huge heat sink and I only mentioned it because some of us also work on other engines too.
