You can drill them out using the tool sold by a member here called A Quiet Boom (Christian)> I am in the process of usign that. Alos, you might try a better penetrating oil than WD40. How long were you heating it for? I was able to remove half of my studs using heat and vice grips w/o breaking them.

I just performed this today and also my head studs, I used my Snap On CG500 and collets. Heat was also a key in removing, it was slow and I also used an impact wrench to tighten the collet over the threads before attempting to loosen. I also found it helpful to turn it clockwise a bit then go counter clockwise, back and fourth in slow motions then when it feels loose just remove it. Good luck.

Yes of course, I forgot to mention PB Blaster. I did use this several consecutive days before removal but do this in a ventillated area and let them soak overnight.

Best Regards,

Alex
