My Ride: E92 soon?
An electric cordless or corded won't be strong enough, and an air impact will need a compressor pushing enough cfm and a hose too. You are better off using a giant breaker bar for simplicity.

My Ride: A car
I know it's late now, but usually a breaker bar and a 1'-2' pipe do wonders when trying to break a large bolt loose versus an impact gun. Sometimes I even break out a 4' long pipe when something is really stubborn, the important thing then is to have a helper put perpendicular pressure on the nut to make sure your socket doesn't slip off and strip the nut.
