Exhaust stud removal

Putting in the header pipes this afternoon- driver's side goes right in no issues. Discover one of the studs on passenger side is stripped. Of course I didn't realize this when rebuilding the engine.

Any ideas on how to back the stud out of the head? Not a lot of room in there to work...

TIA- search function didn't help much... Found a Lisle stud removal tool but don't think there is enough room to fit it in there. Trying to think what would fit that would grip the stud tight enough to twist it out.

When removing the nuts a few years ago in the beginning of the restoration (yes, it's taking that long) a couple studs came out with the nut- wish that would have happened here!!

Weld a nut on the end of the stud. Then heat and lots of it. Heat until glowing red and then loosen.
