the 10mm bolts hold the air box in the car and the torx screws hold the two halves of the air box together... To make your life easier, you can pull the entire air box and then seperate it outside of the car and do what you need to do, reassemble and drop it back in the car.

Just be careful not to hack up the mass air flow sensor that resides behind the air box when you pull the air box and reinstall. Also, if you pull the air box, ensure a good seal between the air box and the tubes that connect to it.
