When I removed my plenum to paint a couple of weeks ago, I thought I'd check the Torque specs. of the fasteners that hold the intake gaskets on. I wanted to tighten them up if they were loose, not that I have the symptoms necessarily but just to be sure. When I looked at them they were a kind of Torx style, actually they were opposite of what I know Torx to be. They were male instead of the normal female Torx that the tools in my box would work on. What are these called, where can I get the tools from and what size are necessary for that job?? I still plan on doing this check, Thanks!
