    There are a lot of tools on here so that wont be hard

    Kidding but do you mean to remove one of the 3 bolts of the supercharger which is at the top?? If so then you can get to it with a #8 wrench or 5/16 I think is the other size. Also note that the thread it backwards so it would have to be un tightened clockwise. Or the opposite of the two other bolts.

    1/4 box end wrench or an E6 Torx wrench.

    I bought an el-cheapo set of torx wrenches at Harbor Freight. I heated up the one end with a torch and bent an angle on it that allows me to get at that back bolt with ease...

    i dont see how the wrench would work considering it wont grab onto the torx head of the bolt. i am talking about the one back bolt on top that looks to be a pain in the ass to get out.i have tried a couple different methods to get it out but cant seem to find something small and thin enought to get that thing out. am i crazy about the tool that i thought i saw in the store months ago called torx adapter that was designed to pull out that one bolt? it looks like the gear holder tool

    1/4in 12 point box end wrench will get it

    you will need to get the V band clamp off the exh pipe and slide it back a bit to be able to get a swing on that bolt

    then throw that bolt away and put a better fastener in there
