I'm very glad you got yourself out of the problem. You done good, when you're up against the problem, you just put determination into it and go for it. But, do your torque wrench a favor and go buy a breakover bar. Don't use your torque wrench for breaking bolts loose. If you had to put more than the maximum rated torque on the wrench, I would no longer trust its calibration.
Maybe you can use a friend's torque wrench to check yours against, although I would have to think about that to know how I would go about it.
There's not too many tools in your tool box that are handier than a 1/2" breakover bar.
I would not typically use a six point either, but in his case with a siezed bolt, I would recommend a six point for that situation.
