Interested in what job you were trying to do when this fiasco ensued...

Oil filter housing gasket
You have to remove intake manifold enough to shift it over and out a few inches to get to a tough bolt on the housing.
Bolt was stiff the entire time, nothing I could do but pull it at that point; looks to have seized to the threads of the head oddly
Not cross threaded, as there's 6 remaining threads or so in the head and bolt still perfect
Freak thing I guess
Sucks but I'll replace it with a stud like the remaining ones have; and it'll be good
Just irritated
It's buttoned you, priming the water pump and oil pump as we speak

Super easy job, just lame a freak thing happened :/

I couldn't find it either, I pulled my coil connectors and just primed it
Probably washed the walls down with fuel but it's better than not priming it I guess ha
1k miles she's doing good

In the shop, I would clean the aluminum off those studs, and re-use them.
