Applying a torch to the stud will also break up the locktite, assuming there's loctite on it.

I've always had good luck with a left handed drill bit....that is if you can fit the drill up there, and already own or can buy a left handed drill bit.

It's out!!

Drilled it out, broke a couple easy outs, drilled it more, and finally tapped it out. Got new bolts too that take allen wrenches instead of torx bits.

Can I get a HELL YEAH?!?!?
