Got them off and here is by far the best and most descript way to do it.

Leave all the timing belt guides on the engine.
Dont' remove the timing belt.
Make sure you have the timing belt/engine in proper location as to not damage valves.
Put a breaker bar on the crank bolt to hold the crank/belt cams in place
Use another breaker bar on a HARDENED allen socket (broke a craftsmen in about .2s)

The gear bolts break super easy this way, and you don't ruin your timing belt. We had no problem with it jumping teeth or anything.

Most impact guns can't even touch these bolts, as these bolts just laughed at ours.
