Paul, I feel your pain with regard to your exhaust stud problem! My 930 is also an 87 (just under 70K) - I tore the engine down a couple of years ago due to a troubling knock and removing the headers was one of the most difficult/frustrating steps! All of the nuts were so rusted that there really wasn't a flat side left on them! All had to zapped off with a torch and all the studs had to be drilled out and holes timecerted (welding a nut to them didn't work as the studs just broke off at the head) - this was done with the engine out and apart and was still a nightmare! BTW - torching the nuts was the easy part - got them cherry red and shot them with a blast of oxygen and they essentialy vaporized.
