From what I can recall the bolts provided fit perfectly. Didn't have any issues.

Thanks for the quick reply. I had my buddy who has been working on cars all his life and he tried to thread them through and they did the same thing I thought it was me so we took the spacer out and put back everything to its original state. Going to see if we can find shorter bolts.

Forgot to mention on the bottom right on the manifold there is a stopper right in the line of the bolt as you start threading so there is no way for it to thread as it stops it from doing that.

Went to install the body spacer this morning and had some trouble. I have a 2013 LX 2.4L and the bolts that come with the spacer only one did work and went through all the way the other three once you start to thread them they do not go all the way through as it was hitting part of the manifold piece in other words they are too long. I need to see if i can find some shorter bolts, wish me luck. How did you get yours to thread all the way K5NOOB?

Yeah that's the first I've heard of this as well. Wonder what is different?

Sorry to hear you had some issues with the length of the bolts.

Were you able to get it resolved and installed?
