I actually had to look in a few autoparts stores and finally had to ask for the T47 (and no, Bill, I don't have a SC... ).

Just ask is the answer....

That is interesting Lash, the main drive belt on the SC'* is 15mm tensioner bolt. Now WHY would they give the NA a different bolt head than the SC for main drive belt.

Someone somewhere is laughing daily at these kinds of questions..I know they are... because they chose the bolt and knew we'd wonder.

Thanks for the heads up on where to get the T47. I went to the dealer today and they can order in the replacement for a whopping $8.50 for one bolt. But they're the only place to get it from so they can charge whatever they want.

Holy smokers, that'* a chunk of change! Did you check the hardware stores? I'd certainly be hitting the junkyards before I pad that kind of money for a bolt...but, I'm cheap that way. Perhaps Boosty has something like that in mind, or has one?

No sir, don't work for Mac Tools, but I have a few of their products. I checked the Sears site first for that Torx driver. They don't have one, which led me to assume that they're not available in auto parts stores. But if the OP can obtain one from a parts store, that would be good. Just make sure it'* not made in China before buying. No sense in using an inferior quality tool on such an expensive bolt.

On a side note: I'm amazed that the SSEi can actually be driven with the supercharger belt unhooked. I can't fathom how it is able to get any air that way.

Going with the torx head again, or did they have another option?

I'm assuming it'* Torx. I think it would have worked fine had i not used a 1/4" allen to turn it the first time. In all honesty i think with the T50 i could use it and it would be fine, but I would rather spend $8.50 on a new bolt than god knows how much to have the bolt removed once it was completely rounded out.

Suprisingly the car runs fine without the SC hooked up. My temperature is still right at 180 degrees and it runs smooth. The only thing it'* missing is the whine and the extra power. Regardless, I am really hoping the bolt comes in tomorrow because if i have to wait for it to come from Lansing it could be 3-5 days.
