M60b3 TB removal. Please help before I burn this car to the ground.

Im trying to delete my Asc+t system on my 94 530i. I accidentally ordered the non asc boot so might as well. Couldn't find a good wright up on the removal for the m60 motors. But seems pretty straight forward so I started the removal last night right before dark and couldn't get past the throttle. The torx bolts are rusted and stripped and I can't get them to budge. So I spent all last night trying to find more info on the subject and still stumped. And now today. It's getting dark and I'm still right were I started. So stressful to not get any progress done. Also on the throttle why are the bolts so hard to get too. I'm not sure how bmw expected them to ever be removed.

Liquid wrench/penetrating oil is mandatory no matter what bolt you are working on. Spray it. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Spray it again. You have to get the oxidization off. Also, that hose looks perished btw.
