Looking for ideas how to remove exhaust manifold bolts? Yes I can go down the line & OH SHIT! - I'm trying to not happen. I don't want to pull the head or inner fenders ect. Trying not to screw my self - I need your ideas.

Depends on if you can get to the or not.

If they are inaccessible your bet to just pull the heads and save yourself a bunch of frustration and hard work

I have used a propane torch to heat the manifold up around the bolts and work them loose sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't

this is video is for a 7.3 but the principle is the same. this is what i have used as my methods

patience and heat+croil (or some equivalent) typically works, but if you can take heads off(knowing you don't want to go that route) you may be time ahead.
