heres my question, over the weekend, putting on the intake manifold bolt, it broke (sheared it) , now I have to get a bolt, there are 8 intake manifold bolts, but only one is broken , Can I just buy just one and still use the other ones on the intake manifold or do I have to buy all 8 of them? Your help is greatly appreciated thanks.

There are two schools of thought on this. You could just replace the broken bolt but won't you have to remove the intake again to get it out? If you do, then I would recommend replacing all the bolts. If one broke, then the others might do the same thing when you re-install them. If you can remove the broken bolt without removing the intake manifold again, then I would replace only the broken bolt.
