WELL you have it out of the car, so not very screwed!

weld a nut to it and spin it out, drill it and use an extractor.
Ah. I don't have a welder or a friend that has one, and all of my drill bits are both hand-held and not quite hard enough to drill through it. Rather than go out and try it myself, I've taken it to a machine shop. No estimate on when they can get to it, but here's hoping it's soon


Fun thats the same one that snapped for me when putting on downpipe :(. Took my turbo to machine shop drilled out and put new stud in.
It's the absolute worst one. I even put a torch to it beforehand and let it soak in liquid wrench for 12 hours🤷‍♂️. Guess it was meant to be. At any rate, it's getting replaced with some ARP studs so this will hopefully never happen again

Thought I'd conclude the thread. Machine shop removed the stud without needing to re-tap the housing. 60 bucks for a half hour of labor. ARP stud screwed right in with no issues. All of the studs now have some high-temp anti-seize on the studs and nuts. I have a feeling I'll need to pull the turbo again at some point. Gotta look out for future me, after all.
