While torquing them down after checking out the spark plugs, one of the bolts for my ignition pack snapped. I was using the proper in-lbs in torque, but it still popped while down in the hole. For something that far down, can I drill it out or use some sort of easy out? Is the car drivable for the time being?

You probably don't need that fourth bolt.

Somebody must have over torqued that sucker at one point.

Remove the coilpack and check how much of the bolt still sticks out. If you have enough to grab it with vicegrips pull it out that way. If not weld a nut to it then undo the bolt.
