Removing a transmission

okay so I'm trying to remove my transmission and I'm having trouble getting the exhaust bolts off from the headers to the pre-cats. Any tips? They are seemingly impossible to break loose :/

I usually start the week before and pb blast them every day for the week then they would cone out. Last time I replaced them with stainless hardware. Came out really easy last week when I dropped it out.

Might try a torch heat it til it's red then break it loose.

When all else fails cut them then drill out the studs and replace with new hardware like I did.
