boss 302 intake manifold bolts

Ok, so I was installing my boss 302 intake manifold on my 12 gt, and like a complete idiot. Didn't read the directions carefully and assumed that the torque specs were 89 ft lbs not inch pounds. So I snapped a bolt. Assuming I can get the bolt out easily. Anyone know what bolt I need to replace it??

Take the bolt in to NAPA. I did the same thing and they matched the thread count and had a new bolt in minutes

How did you get the bolt into the manifold? Doesn't it lock in?

Oh my bad man, I misread that. I thought you were talking about the exhaust manifold

You really thought a plastic manifold should be torqued to 89 foot lbs? Wow.

You don't even need a tq wrench. Doing it by hand and feel is all you need

No... you need a torque wrench putting together anything with tight tolerances or with a real low value or anything that is really really really ****ing critical that it is installed just so.

However, if the OP thought intake bolts needed to go to 89ft lbs he should probably stop trying to work in the car himself and take it to a shop for this sort of thing...

Well mine had been off the car 4 times. Never once used a tq wrench.

Intake is one thing. Don't be retarded and go in the right sequence and you should be ok. Other stuff like head studs, crank bearings and **** like that where tolerances need to be within spec... gots to have a good torque wrench.

Of course. I was referring to the manifold nothing more.

Happened to me, go to your ford dealership and ask them for that bolt. I do not know the size but it's around 8 moneys per bolt. Did you get the bolt out?
