Never changed one but I would think WD-40 would go a long way towards making it an easier job.

The only other thing I can think of is heating the nuts. Beyond that, I would break the studs, remove the manifolds (a real PITA) and drill and tap for new studs.

Good Luck.

When i did mine, i sprayed them down several times a day for about 3 days. The started it up and let the manifolds get warm to the touch where i just could touch them, but not hot enough to burn the fingers. They came off pretty easy then. Good luck.
