Autolite 606'* might be the direct replacement for your car, but I have always used this information from the INTENSE website.

Mike: Before you take the sensors off the TB, read this:

It may save you making the same mistake I did.

Barry, thanks for the concern, but I'm not really certain what it is that I should do differently - it seems like you aren't the only person who has had to deal with this. Is there a different way to remove this screw, or do you think these designed to be some kind of no-tamper/tamper-evident marker?

Mike: There may be some threadlocker on there that causes them to be so stuborn. Maybe a little Silikroil or PB Blaster could work its way in and help, along with it little gentle tapping before you try to twist it out. The other bolt came out easily. Good luck.
