weld socket to it or something. I always get stuff out this way. The heat helps it too. Exhaust manifolds basically freeze the bolts in place so I doubt easy out or something that wont grip like crazy will work, good luck
I am assuming you mean the heads are stripped (rounded) and not the threads.
The thermal cycling (swelling and subsequent contraction of the bolt threads) of welding a nut to the head often loosens the threads and makes the bolt come out more easily as well. Be careful of spattering steel and slag.
I was given a set of the twist sockets that Mike UZ mentioned. I have never had to use them but they look like they would work.
Sadly, I don't have a set of right hand twist sockets so I could not reuse the round headed bolts. :lol3:
