exhaust cam bolt

Does anyone know where a good place to get a better exhaust cam timing gear bolt is? my exhaust cam is off time by a half tooth, tried to loosen it and stripped out the EXTREMELY shallow torx head. Besides habving to figure out how to remove this bolt I also need the better bolt I have seen people discuss before. All help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you all for your help. Any ideas on how to get it out? the bolt head is completely stripped. I am figuring on taking the cam back out and using old timing belt to make a strap wrenh to hopefully use the gear to break the torque free. Any better ideas?

I hated that bolt so much. I just used a breaker bar and had a friend put a lot of pressure onto the end to keep it from slipping. It was pretty stripped already but I got lucky and it came loose. I replaced it with the ARP bolt from CFM.

are you using the pipe wrench to grab exhaust cam gear? I have tried to get ahold of the bolt with a pipewrench, channel locks, vise grips with no avail. I would be a little worried to grip the teeth on the cam gear with a pie wrench in fear it would put grooves on the pully teeth and cause more wear on belt

If you tried a pipe wrench with no avail, you might have to weld a nut to the bolt and get it out that way. Unfortunately, isn't much else you can do.
