EGR temp sensor removal

So I'm playing around with my egr. and I've taken it out no problem. Im trying to replace my temp sensor... but the nut will not budge. I've soaked it with wd-40 but still nothing. I cant get a real grip on the egr since its shaped so strangely.

What's the best way I can remove this thing? Does it need to be hot before I can remove it like some O2 Sensors?

Edit: 96 camry xle v6.

Try using PB blaster or Kroil penetrating oil, they work a lot better than WD-40.

I'll have to try that next time.

My solution was taking it to a shop and they were nice enough to loosen it for me. I've done that with a few parts now.
