[V8] Busted torxs

Doing the TB, everything came apart OK without too much cussing except some 
of the torx screws on the water pump. Two broke off, one is stripped.

I plan to hammer (ouch!) something into the stripped one and see if I can 
persuade it to come out with a hand impact driver. Any suggestions on 
removing the broken studs after the water pump is out?

Timing belt on a V8 is orders of magnitude more complex than on an I5 - and 
it isn't fun in the heat of the summer, either.
