I removed the two T40 torx bolts and even the nut beneath it (which I wasn't sure I was supposed to do).

I have put a ton of force on this thing and it won't come out.

I pull on it laterally away from the engine block. I get a little movement. I have tried prying it with a screw driver to get a little play and I have saturated it with WD40. I have tried actuating the butterfly by using my finger and pulling the level to no avail. Does anyone have any advice?

Please!
