Default By-Pass Hose Torx screw?

Greetings, I was hoping someone could tell me the about the torx screw that holds in place the metal By-Pass Hose to the Turbo inlet pipe. I just noticed mine is missing and would like to replace it. A part number would be great, or should I just go to a auto parts store or a hardware store? Thanks for your input, BWS

As a guess, more than likely, M6 x 1..
Slow on "any old bolt"......automotive quality is usually higher than store junk. Try to use OEM, it looks and is better.
Use anti-seize on the threads.

Go straight to the dealer, do not pass "go." Of course, take the car, or a clear picture that shows the bolt and/or its location.

How is one non-essential bolt better than the other? You could use a piece of chewed gum in that spot and it wouldnt make a bit of difference.
