thank god my local dealer had the studs ($0.32) so I ordered some.

here are my pix:

I too went torque happy yesterday , these studs are VERY soft!

Question for the ones that have had broken studs, can you replace it with the valve cover on, or you have to take it off again? Either my socket is too fat or something because it doesn't grab the stud with the cover on. Is it a 10mm right?
