    I was going thru some stuff on the car today and gonna clean the sct 300 maf but dont have the tool for the bolt heads. They look like torx but have a small center peg. Ive been searching and cant figure out what tip i need to get. Anybody know?. Thanks sean

    There a "tamper proof" torx bit, you can find them everywhere. Check auto parts stores and Home Depot or lowes should have them.

    Or, I've seen that you can use a small flathead screwdriver that contacts one of the corners of the torx and the round column in the middle.

    Autozone sells a universal torx set with 40 bits, one of them is the exact match to remove that
