Broken mani bolts options

Okay so i had two on the pass side and one on the driver. I got one out on the passenger side w a nut welded on the stud. I plan on tryin the other two again tomorrow but i wasnt havin much luck today. Gonna try smaller nuts. Also have some Cobalt drills handy but need a 90 deg drill really. Any other tips? Just wanna be ready w anything I can throw at it.

The broken ones (hemi) I've had to remove have come out easily once the manifold has been removed. Use penetrating oil. On a ford had to resort to welding nuts to the studs and found if it was a 3/8 stud to use a 1/2 inch nut. And turn it out while still hot.post some pics if you can.

Drill and tap out of the question? I've never helicored a bolt, and don't think i'd want to. i'd dril it out one size bigger (not mixing standard/metric) and re-tap before i'd helicore.
I think i'd JB weld before i'd helicore.

Ive used helicoils when necessary as a machinist to repair mostly aluminum without issue. The thread restored using helicoil is stronger than the original thread. For me personally if it came down to having to drill out a broken bolt i would remove the head to do the best job possible. Good luck.
