Soak the bolt in the penetrating oil of of your choice. (I like CRC-Freeze off, but your milage may vary) Then using the crank holding tool, use the biggest impact you can get your hands on. Ive used the Milwaukee Cordless 2767 without any issue as well as an air IR gun (forgot the model but it was at least 700 ft/lbs). This bolt is the key to any timing belt job and Im pretty sure all the videos say Get this loosened before you start any other part of the job.
