You could take the studs out yourself using two nuts and the jam nut method if you wanted. Clamp the housing in a vise, thread a nut about half way on the stud, then tighten another stud onto the stud upagainst that nut then a wrench on the lower nut and break that stud free. Use some PB blaster on that stud though for a little while before hand and possibly while.

WD 40 is ******* worthless for trying to free something that is rusted.

PB Blast that bitch.

you need heat... I soaked mine in pb blaster for several days and still broke a few studs off using that method. Add heat (map gas torch) and they'll come right out.

Dude you shouldn't need a hammer. Take you time and don't force anything. If you shear off any of the studs flush with the manifold you'll be focked.

If you don't have a torch, you can put it in the freezer. It's not the heat (or cold) that will bust the stud loose, it's the fact that different materials expand (or contract) at different rates.
