............slot it with a dremel for removal with a flat blade screwdriver.....or remove the allen head completely with a dremel, remove engine then remove leftover shaft with vice grips...................

If you mean the top screws that hold the engine onto the engine mount....

Take the engine out of the car using the screws on the bottom of the chassis. Dremel a slot across the stripped hex head using a cutoff tool and back it out with a screwdriver.

If it is a screw on the bottom of the chassis you can dremel a slot in the screw, but you need to use a small cutoff wheel so you don't cut into the chassis.

Take your time and use a steady hand

You can also drill through from the bottom depending on what the screw is attached to ( chassis, etc. ). Just use the right size drill bit to do it.
