I have had many bolts that were difficult to remove. My guess is the previous mechanic just REALLY tightened everything down, instead of using torque specs. The transmission pan on my SD came off just fine though.
I have heard of folks banging in a torx tool to gain a bite. I've also heard of folks using heat.
8mm is 8mm the world over. The next size up torx is T50, but that's 8.72mm.
Before you remove it, make sure you have a new replacement.
Good luck.
