Yeah, but remember that the bolt will have a nut on the other side of the plenum. So you must take the plenum off and take the nut from underneath and then replace it with a new one. It is not that hard to take it off. You must loosen all 8 holder screws from the throtle bodies and pull a couple of hoses and wires and then you can pull up on the plenum. There is a DIY thread somewhere on this.
