Ok, a friend of mine just bought a 96 v6 mustang
and he has a set of ported intakes. Pretty sweet since he paid a total of 150 for both and theyre basically brand new.
Well today I was going to help him out but when he popped the hood I saw no bolts at the crossover on his stock intake. You know the 4 that are right after the throttlebody? Yea someone ground them down to the point where they have no head and painted over them.
So I sat there for a sec cursing the previous owner and thought well I have one idea. So I ground a slot in the existing head of the bolts and tried to remove it with a flat head screwdriver. Torque was too much though. He doesn't have any sharp drill bits so I didn't even attempt drilling it.
What's everyone think I should do? I am getting paid 25 bucks to install them for him and I don't know how to get these damn bolts off.
