    I know I took it out before, and I still have the tamper proof torx heads, but it seems the holes have shrunk on the heads. Dont ask. But anyway, what size do I need?

    I don't think they are the tamper proof heads, but I could be wrong. I think they are a T15. Again, I could be wrong.

    I know they are tamper proof. Atleast on mine they are. They have a raised part in the center where you can get a regular one in. But good to know its a 15. Thanks.

    Plan on drilling them out, cause they are likely going to either A. Twist the torx bit into a helical bit and still not loosen, or B. the head of the bolt will snap off...

    Ive had mine stolen and Ive taken it out many of times. It only screws into plastic so how hard can it be in there?

    Oh, I see. So you were confused because you use the plaque on the upper intake as a grill (as in a "gridiron"). The perfect steak is cooked medium, and has a big "5.0 V8" embossed on it. :D
