You need about 200 ft-lbs to break it loose. the trick is holding the pulley.
all it took was the special tool and a bigger breaker bar....
ps. the special tool didn't work on my MY98....the hole pattern in the pulley was different than the tool...very odd....I don't know how the shops do it...there's not a whole lot of room in there...
you'll get more room if you take the fans off.
loosen but do not remove the bottom bolts...there's two...the fans are slotted to slip into place...the fan plug is at the bottom also. remove the two top bolts and the passenger side radiator stay.
on the drivers side, you have to take the overflow bottle off. it's just the top two bolts.
everything comes right out.

I know this may sound silly, but make sure you are turning it in the right direction. You unbolt it by turning counterclockwise. It is set up so that the bolt tightens while the engine turns. You can check this by bumping the engine over with the starter. The instructions in the Mods section make this clear. They say unbolt counterclockwise.
A buddy of mine and I had this problem. We printed out the directions and it cut off the counter part of counter clockwise.
Just get someone to sit in the car. Put your ratchet (a breaker bar would be better) on the bolt, Stick a big piece of pipe (like a 5 foot piece of galvanized), get someone to sit in the car with the breaks on, and crank away as hard as you can. It will come loose.
