The best thing you can do is about a week before you pop off exhaust parts is just start hitting them daily (multiple times even) with penetrating oil and letting it soak in ( do not drive it). Then, day off, have you a torch handy (I mean acetylene, not a propane bottle) and you gotta get the bolts and nuts cherry red, then let them cool enough to not be glowing any more and slowly work at them until they come out. It's a beast on older motors and when it comes to steel bolts in aluminum heads it's just going to suck no matter which way you try it. My advice would be to take it to a mechanic and have them take everything off and then have it hauled back to your place if you want to crawl under and bolt it all back on, then use plenty of anti-sieze.....

Ask me how I know.... Those were done by the puller.... The rest that came out were done by me..... If you have bolts broken off in the head its a PITA to resolve.
