Well after deciding to do the "Locktite Butterfly Screws"mod i found out that im missing 1 butterfly and 3 screws, so i have deciced to take the head apart and make sure that the screws are not in there, i got the butterfly out, it was the driver side and it found it way to the passenger side and got all bent anyways here is a few pics of the butterfly, ill take pics as i go along and keep you all posted, and for those that asked or think about asking about symptoms of the screw missing, THERE IS NONE, my car was running fine, no noise whatsoever so make sure you do this mod before is too late and have to do what im about to do :S tear the whole head apart.

How long did it take for you to remove the head? to get to the butterflies?
to get to the butterflies you take off the intake manifold it took me about 30 mins if that, but to take the whole head off to find out that i didnt have any screws inside it took me about 2hrs.

That looks just like a Pringle Chip. I'm hungry! My car ate 1 screw and the butterly was cocked sidways and kept the secondaries open. I took all of them out now.

that's why i warned you... there are ways to see if there's a screw in your cylinder without taking the head off.

LOL you should've said , "Hey Do this... that way you dont have to take it off" LOL instead of " are you gonna take the head off? have fun" LOL xD its a learning experience anyways :D
