    Default 2000 intake manifold tb screws

    i have a 2000 intake manifold, that has machined threads. i cannot find the correct bolts. i have tried ford and the locals hardware store for every metric and standard bolt/screw size available. 3 of the threads have slots in the top and can be unscrewed out of the intake manifold. Any ideas of what screw goes in this? i have a pic of the thread casing but i dont see a way to load pictures, i havent posted on here in a long time.....

    I had a 2000 Intake Manifold and the TB was mounted by basically lag bolts with a Torx head to them.

    I got mine from the dealer. Was like $5.00 for 4. And yah... they were just regular old screws with a torx head.

    i dont know the history of the intake manifold, i got the ones with torx and they are very much wrong they are some sort of metric bolt and from what i can tell they are m4.5, some sort of special made size...

    Really? Mine basically looked like lag bolts that are made for wood or something. That's the way it came from the factory in '01. Are the holes metal lined and threaded, or plastic just like the mani itself?
