so I attempted to install the stage 1 intake and the oem bolts had red loctite ,thus on last bolt it broke head off. I had to drill out bolt and got lucky with install of new airbox bolt.
Just an fyi watch them bolts..heat up a little first to release red loctite a bit.
Here are some picts of end of my debacle.

I've seen too many posts of Challenger owners snapping bolts because Indian is using red loc-tite on bolts that shouldn't. That's really lame. Forward that to Indian to get that shit out.

Because modern engines rarely need anything, manufacturers use poison pills to defeat people from working on their own vehicles. They assume if it's too difficult you'll take it to the dealer who relies on charging a fortune for things that are basically trivial.
