2014 5.7 1500 Trying to take out the bolts on the exhaust manifold on drivers side 1 bolt broke off inside the head. Took to shop and they cannot get it out since I broke off and extractor inside the broken bolt. How hard would it be to replace the head. Cannot find anything online. Please help.

The shop didn't try welding a nut onto the broken stud? Which bolt?

yes they tried weilding, they said the extractor is too close to the side of the head and digging in when trying to come out.

If you can afford the downtime, just pull the entire head and have a machine shop drill/tap the next size larger (3/8 or M10) on a CNC mill with a carbide. Be sure to use high temp gasket maker on the new bolt threads if close to a water jacket.

I guess my link got pulled but if you you tube "Hemi cam install" there is a video of a shop pulling the heads to install cams.
