Spring bolt broken on header!? Need help

Hey guys. This is my first post here, I'm an RSX owner but anyway... my buddy brought his car to me so I could to the exhaust... having no room to cut the bolts on the cat(they we're so rusted the bolts we're just lumps of steel on the flange) I removed the cat from the header(held by 2 spring bolt or however you want to call them) but one of them broke... there's about 1/8 inch sticking out and the rest is thread into the WELDED bolt on the header... note that everything is stock. Have no clue where to go from here. My worst case scenario is.... remove the header drill the bolt. But I've read that removing the header involves alot more than just removing the 5 bolts holding it on the engine....
