Drivers side up pipe

New to the forum, need some help!! I have 2 bolts left on the driver side up pipe (top side bolts) broke two 13mm sockets good ones, not crap tools!! Can not get the bolt to break loose!! Have sprayed and waited a few times. Have been going in from under the hood. Now the bolt head is rounded. Any thoughts?!?!?

Best bet is to spray them and let them sit for a while like over night. Even better to spray then do a heat cycle, spray, heat cycle if you can, but you may not be able to do that since it sounds like you have already got things apart. Check out the link. Pretty handy tool for broken bolts, but probably work on your rounded head. Its also easier if you have someone on top of the motor hold the socket on while you have a breaker bar to break them loose and it dont slip.

I hade to do something I never thought I would.... I gave up!! But at least I felt like I gave it my all. I’m settling for exhaust manifolds without new PPE drivers side up pipe. It’s all good though, when I do my turbo swap Ill get that bitch then!! Tired of messing with this! All is left is tighten the bolts and we’re back on the road.
