How do ya remove the stock RX2 12a header from the 12a engine block?

I'm trying to get the old header off of the 12a engine.
I undid the 2 nuts on the top of the header flange where it meets the aforementioned 12a type place.
there is still 2 nuts that are impossible to get any tool into for the cavity is too tight you see.
i don't usually put just any tool around these nuts but a nice 14mm spanner or socket would be the case, if there was enough room for either, however this situation has proven to be not so fortunate for this here I.

i would like to know how people get their rx2 12a exhaust headers off because the only way i can see this happening is... i don't even know..... like angle grinder or something..

hope people can help, i would be forever grateful and i will probably remain in your debt for most of eternity.
i will perhaps attempt to attach a photograph documenting my shortcomings.

Peace, and happiness be upon you all~

Sincerely, from Hozay the rotary guy that likes learning about how to remove an rx2 12a exhaust header
