    Engine removal

    Hi guys just a quick question... I have spun bearing in my 2011 WRX... and am currently yanking the engine... all is well except for the Damn Down pipe where it mounts to the turbo... all of the bolts are seized... I've tried everything that's at my disposal short of cutting the bolts out with a dremel or something simular... so far I've tried 1/2 dr impact no room to get it in there... 3/8 drive impact didn't have enough balls, and 1/2 and 3/8 dr air ratchet both didn't have enough balls... a regular socket with a breaker bar is round off my bolts... I dont know what else to do...

    This, I let mine soak in an extensive amount of PB blaster for a good hour then still couldn't break them loose without a 24 inch breaker bar and a lot of force from yours truly.
