Default Broken lower intake manifold bolt

I am in the process of putting my 3.0 back together (head gasket job).
Everything going well until I felt the drivers side rear bolt for the lower
intake manifold get funky. Wasn't even close to torque specs. Tried to back it out and it snapped. Probably going to pull the head and go back to
the bench to see how bad it will be to remove the bolt. What I cannot find
is a part number for these T50 bolts. Anyone have a lead on these? Thanks

Default Re: Broken lower intake manifold bolt - More info

Holes all had a tap run thru them and blown out.
Bolts were lubed. Wrench set at 8 lbs. for first go
around. After I pulled the head and went to the bench
I was able to extract the broken part with my finger
nails. Now I just want a new set of bolts and better
luck!!
