Things are moving along. Engine is being readied for paint. Unfortunately 1 manifold bolt broke and we are uable to budge whats left of it. We have soaked it in PB blaster, heated it, welded a couple of nuts on it....just wont budge.
I am installing RamAir manifolds.....the bolt that wont budge is on the left forward exhaust...right bolt. If we are unable to get it out and just cut it of...will that be enough to hold the Ram Air manifolds tight enough with no leaks? Any ideas appreciated...tahnks.

I'd take it to a machine shop and have them remove it. Not hard to do but can be a problem if not done right. You may have to supply the correct tap to clean up the threads afterwards.
