Haha, same thing happened to me and not fun as it was getting dark plus I couldn't finish securing it! Had to go to an O' Reillys to get the bolt but I wanted the original that came with ETS CP.

Let me check at home and tell you the size fi you haven't got it by then. Cheers.

After installing my ER charge pipe, and giving it a WOT pull, my screw flew out and pipe came off the inter cooler, putting my car in limp mode.

It scared the shit out of me since I only had the car for a few months and thought I broke something major.

With that said, I still haven't been able to find the bolt and reattached the charge pipe to the inter cooler. This time a little tighter. Haha. I haven't had any issues in 10k plus miles. I think that the bolt to the engine puts a little more strain on the fitment of the pipe to inter cooler anyway. But that's only a theory I have.....
