i would also suggest not trying to remove them when the car is hot...although maybe that's a good time to try for some reason i'm not aware of.

Back and forth many times untill you get that space enough to spray PB down there.Still,go back in if you have to often.Break the corrosion and and chipping.
Lots of us already have the Heli-coil or Time-sert kit for those.

make sure you antiseize the hell out of the bolts when you put the intake back on

I had the head of a bolt twist off, so i took all the rest off, and pried the manifold over the bolt, wich was easy, and then used some vice grips that were SOOOO tight, i mean i used chanell locks to lock the vices down, and it turned out with PB blaster, so really its not the end of the world.

Otherwise, what the others have said. Heat-cycling the bolt area and penetrant oil, work the bolt slowly out then back in. Patience.
I'm thinking of replacing with studs and o-rings on mine.

which has the potential to create a lot of problems...
yeah, they suck. i had to heli-coil 4 out of the 6 holes when i resealed my motor. i've gotten quite good at heli-coiling. my last car was from Vermont. yep you guessed it, EVERYTHING broke. lol check around at several shops and see what they use for rust penetrant. i found this stuff called "nutcracker" at a local stealership... this stuff's 10 times better than pb-blaster. just stop by a stealership and ask a mech if they use something better than pb-blaster to break down rust... if they got it they'll tell you.
