I know this should be a no-brainer but...

Is there a special socket I need to get my Hooker Header Bolts out??? I don't have the world's best collection of tools but I do own "a few" sockets! I just don't own one that fits those bolt heads! :-(

Thanks!

I believe they are the TorX bits. they look sort of like a star , you can get a complete set almost anywhere for around 40 bux.

Unless you want to hear header leaks and enjoy changing header gaskets forever, get a set of Stage 8 locking bolts or ARP pre-drilled NASCAR header bolts (small 3/8" hex) and safety-wire them after a couple of heat cycles, and you'll never have to touch them again. Been there, done that, for many, many years (safety-wired ARP bolts), never had a leak or blown gasket yet.
