Technique... The torx bit technique you tried was incomplete. Seriously, there are several engines out there with my 'modified 6mm alllen to torx' screws that worked so well, they are still in the car after the next timing belt job. Hammer the torx in, drill out the driven metal, drive the torx again, TWIST AND HAMMER TO REMOVE! Like I said, the hand impact driver is the key, as unlike a normal impact gun, the hand impact driver is not only driven down, but twisting at the same time.

I thought I remembered the handle, Nuje. We know people by their TDIClub handle, their email and sometimes, we the trifecta to their actual name!

I suppose the cylinder head is doing well? You still own it?
