Hi, you should be able to center punch the broken bolt and drill it out. You just need to be sure that you drill it in the center and don't go so large that you ruin the threads. You will need to break away the pieces of the bolt as you drill it or you can drill it out completely and install a heli-coil thread insert. If any part of the broken bolt is sticking up you can try using vise grips on the bolt and turning it. Spray the bolt with some PB Blaster to help loosen it. It's pretty awkward trying to drill back there are the back of the manifold. It would probably be best if you removed the manifold to drill out the bolt.
Let me know if you have any questions.

I'm sorry, I don't understand what you mean. Did you ever get the broken bolt out of the manifold?
