Default Epic fastener failure...

Well, currently upgrading to a Garrett from my chinacharger and I had a local guy coming by to buy my chinacharger, so I figured, better get the thing off so he doesnt have to wait when he gets here. Peeled back my heatshield to reveal some epic JGS fastener fail that I was completely unaware of.

this was a JGS Turbo T3 mounting hardware kit (10x1.5mm), was a good price but obviously failed me, any suggestions?

Machine shop time. One thing to try before anything else though, try just tapping on the broken stud in the turbine housing using a small punch or screw driver at the edge of it to turn it out. I saw a clutch pressure platew bolt removed this way last year and it was amazing. There will be a little burr in the stud still in the turbine housing, you just give that some very gentle tapps counter-clockwise to get it to turn and get the stud out.

I thought that when I had one do that. No good. Eventually sheared off flush.

I would have suggested:
Liquid Wrench overnight and a big pair of vicegrips... but it's already out.

Well after I discovered it, I just took some Visegrip's to it and it came right out. Actually didn't even have to use any penetrating oil/lubricant.

2 things to avoid this in the future:

Use copper anti-sieze.
Don't overtorque them.

I'm willing to bet that the first one would have prevented this.

Were not talking the same anti-seize that you would use say on brake caliper slides?

No, this stuff will resist baking on at high temps.

After putting anti-sieze on every single bolt I touch on both of my cars I'm a much more pleasant person do be around during and after working on the cars.

Will be doing this! I assumed that maybe I overtorqued the nuts when tightening? Thats about the only thing I could think of that broke it, the only part of it that was broken was the threads that the nut itself goes onto, it broke basically from the bottom of the nut where it makes contact with the flange.
