Subject says it all. Need to buy gour bolts to install my daughters ATR system but I need to know the bolt size so I can get them beforehand.

I know they're metric and I think the head is 13mm but that's as close as I know. HELP!!!

off the top of my head i believe its 8mmx1.25 threads, ford uses ths alot on the car,or its 6x1.25.
my intake manifold size was 8x1.25,so that shoudl be it,and they are very short.
i lost all four bolts one day near the jersey shore, exhuast was cooking the firewall, peeeled the paint up.
but man, did that turbo spool nice!!!!!!
hope this helps

What are the odds he typed both of those sizes correctly?

Sorry Brian, I had too.

Joe, do you have any metric taps? Know where I'm going here? If I was home, I'd check the bolts on the spare engine, but your Uncle has me away again!
