Easy out is drillling bolt thinner instead of gripping and pulling it out our local mechanics for repco, told me torque settings were 50nm then 100 nm when it broke i rang holden to find out its 18-22nm then 1/4 turn, so id say its snapped at about 30-35nm with 243 applied,

U could try welding a bolt to the broken bolt. Or worst comes to worst just drill the bolt out and retap or heli-coil the hole.

when you run out of other options you could try either - using a small sharp punch and tapping the bolt in an anticlockwise direction. This should slowly rotate the bolt until theres enough stud sticking out to grab with vice grips. Or, drilling out the bolt to just below the diameter of the thread. then you should be able to pull the remaining metal out in pieces.
Is it possible to remove flywheel from engine and attack the remaining stud with flywheel removed.?

an easy out should get it if the hole is deep enough and you have the right size easy out
