You need heat and air tools! Use an Acetylene torch to heat the manifold cherry red where the studs are one at a time and use your impact tool to back out the stud. If you don't heat the metal surrounding the stud enough, the stud will snap off. Be prepared to replace the studs. also make sure the area you heat is greese free and have a water sprayer on hand to put out any unnecessary flames. A heat shield will help. Once the connection is free, pry out the donut. Replace the studs that back out, then insert the new donut.

Could a bad donut gasket be responsive for a lack of power and bad fuel economy?

All a donut gasket does is provide a seal between your exhaust and your manifold. If anything you may get better mileage because there is less restriction on your exhaust. The bad part is you may get some fumes in the passenger area. ==Another Answer== A bad donut gasket could in fact cause these symptoms. It will allow excess oxygen into the exhaust stream, tricking the oxygen sensor into thinking the engine is running lean, making it add fuel and make the engine run rich. This will hurt fuel economy and power.
