Hey, I just got my shorty JBA and am pretty confident that I will not have any trouble installing it, but I don't have any FEMALE torx sockets as refrenced in the directions, for removing the two studs from the block. Can anyone tell me what size I should buy?

One refrence indicates T-30, but I just want to confirm, before I spend the money.

Thanks

Just went out and bought a star head (torx) female socket set, and if in fact it is the same size as t-30 then it is E-6.

I will confirm tomorrow after the install!

you don't need one...just take the nut off that surrounds it. the posts will stay there and help hold your new header on while you put the other bolts in.

Already did it! 4 hours total, including 45 min fighting with the EGR nut.

It is a E-7, in case anyone cares.

Also FYI, the size of the collector opening on the header is 2 1/4 inches, and the stock header is 1 7/8.
