Default 2003 PT Turbo removal

Need some help!
I am trying to remove the turbo but have hit a snag. There are 5 bolts holding on the heat shild over the turbo/exhaust manifold. I have gotten 4 bolts out with the aid of PB Blaster, but the bolt next to the coolant bottle just wont budge!! Soaked it with blaster, tapped it a few times, soaked it some more over night, not good. And suggestions before there is no head left on the bolt? Thanks in advance

That head is pretty round off now. I think I am going to take a dremmel to cut the head of the bolt off between the heat sheild haves. Then I will extract the rest of the bolt once I get the turbo off.
