i am assuming that it is one into the intake, correct... if so the safest would be to take off the intake and remove the stud that way...

have you thought about a reverse drill bit? I know the first one was on an angle, but it may help to break it lose... if not, you may have to remove everything in the way... lots of work for something so small...
