    I hit it with a tiny screwdriver until i got one tiny thread up and then i spent the next 15 minutes picking at it with needlenose pliers.. What a pain in the ass that was. Definately not rated G. Well here is the culprit..

    Glad to see you go it out.

    ARP bolts are worth the investment.

    If you need a replacement I think I still have my old ones if you want a couple.

    you're welcome


    glad you got it out. Those only get torqued to like 8 ft/lbs. It's actually in in/lbs but it converts to ~8ft/lbs if my memory serves. Do them alternately. Check out ls1howto.com and the intake swap on there...it has the specs and torque pattern there for you.
