EGR removal kit Fail

Hello im new to this forum and thought i would share my frustrating day with you as my intro.
Well my EGR blank kit for my Defender TD5 arrived 2 days ago so i set about spraying penetrating oil on the appropriate bolts and continued for the two days, today i set about installing the kit and the inevitable happened, both bolts snapped flush with the manifold even with applying ample heat to areas and only using a small allen key as to not apply to much pressure. The rest of the day was spent trying to get the manifold off with the same problems occurring so i've admitted defeat and getting her towed to Strathearn engineering tomorrow.....

Just dealt with the same thing..sucked! Do yourself a favor and get a de webbed heat treated manifold while yours is off and longer studs (pm me for details). They commonly warp snapping studs like mine so I took the time to replace it all including turbo oil line gaskets while its off.
