    Heat will help you remove that stud. Might need to drill it out.

    Do I see a broken engine block where the starter mounts? Post #13. It looks like everything will work ok anyway.

    opposite side of where the starter mounts, that was when i was prying the transmission free too. AND i was prying from the passenger side, not the driver side where the broken bit is.

    On the 5.0 the bolts that bolt the manifold to the engine have all come out easy for me. This may be true for the 4.6, so removing the manifold (you'll want new bolts most likely) will make it easier to get the broken stud out with heat as mentioned. Dad took mine to the shop where he works and got mine out so I don't really have any first-hand advice. If removing the manifold is an option for you, that's my vote.

    id pull the manifold do either drill or to replace. either way, every few hours as you work, or everyday, whatever is convenient, blast the hell out of the manifold bolts with PB, WD40, oil, whetever you got. but do it multiple times. and use heat when you can to help remove the bolt. heat the area surrounding the bolts not the bolts themselves. good luck man, glad to see an aero still on the road!

    haven't been able to work on it since last friday, won't be able to see it until wednesday, guess all i've got left is finishing the brakes and exhaust issues.

    also this
    gonna assume i'm gonna want to get a bolt and nut actually on there but i cannot get them off from the replacement transmission. i took off that part, let it soak in penetrating fluid for 24 hours, but nothing really happened. held it in a vice and took an impact to it, got the bolt free from that little part but no budge with the nut. It really looks stuck in there on both ends so I'm tempted to just leave it how it is. thoughts on that? Maybe take JB weld to it just to insure it doesn't break loose?

    alrighty, got all of the big things on the car, crossmember, driveshaft, trans cooler lines. Still haven't put the starter on, I'll get to that tomorrow. I'll likely have it off of the lift tomorrow to move it to another part of the shop to start on the manifold. I can almost see it on the road now!
