im trying to replace my headgaskets on my v6. i remember seeing something on PT about a hidden bolt on the IM but i cant figure out if theres a bolt i havent taken off yet or not and probetalk.com seems to be down. i tried searching on here for it but had no luck. ive taken off the 8 bolts and 4 nuts seen between the runners but the intake manifold is still stuck on by the throtle body. is there something i missed?

Yes, there is a hidden bolt back there and its a real PITA to get. Once you get it off throw it away because you wont need it anymore. I believe its 12mm but I cant remember exactly?
If you measure where the TB attaches to the Manifold, measure back about 4.5-inches, then measure down about 5 to 5-1/2 inches. Thats the proximity of the bolt. An inspection mirror helps -Good luck
