Which CAI? The oem screws should work. Or it should of came with ones. Now that you broke one, maybe Ace hardware?

CAI sends new screws for the MAF sensor, do not use the original ones.

There may be a bit of unwanted metal in the screw bores from when the holes were tapped, making putting the old ones in difficult. See if you can clean them out first. Just saw the above post. Dig around in the box some more!

The intake tube will come with the screws already in the tube. You should have everything you need.

Thanks CAI sales, but I bought it off a camaro5 member and it did not have screws. Now I have to somehow back the broken screw out and hope the threads are ok. I might be the one screwed

Lol...I have the same issue, but caught it before I did any damage. What size screw did you use? I got 8/32 x 1/2in, but they are too long.

I bought 8/32 1 inch screws and had the hardware store cut them to 1/4 inch, worked perfect
