    its normal threads, try driving the car around for a bit so its good and hot, then try to break it free while its hot.

    most o2's come with some anti seize paste, maybe he failed to use it?

    Hopefully that will do it. Otherwise would a shop put in a defouler or is it illegal for this purpose?
