Broke the bolt from intake to throttle body!

Was cleaning my throttle body when to put back on and snapped the bolt connecting the intake and throttle body. Just wondering how big a deal this is?

Buying a plenum that doesn't suck is a good solution to this lol. Get the TFS or Accufab if you do.

This just happened to me last night on my 06 GT. How big of an issue is this? Will it affect performance or mileage? My throttle body seems solid and I don't hear or feel any air escaping so I assume it has a good seal. Any tips?

Some aftermarket plenums don't even have that 5th spot to bolt theirs to the intake manifold just the 4 that bolt right over the hole on the intake manifold.

@KC if your worried about leaks take some carb cleaner and spray where you might think there is one and it will choke up the engine a little and then you know you have a leak. That how I found out my EGR needed a new gasket.
