Stripped exhaust bolt :(

So i figured this would happen. #6 lower bolt hole felt a bit weak when i put the engine together. I used the torque wrench. But this one hole just felt funny. Sure enough, got an exhaust leak there.

Any trickery on how to fix this, with engine in truck (2wd).

Im thinking about turning a custom stud. Splining it.
And hammering it into the head. (that assuming I can get a hammer in there)

Helicoil the hole with the manifold off better than factory.
