hi ive bought a explorer intake for my windsor, the intake didnt come with all the bolts will i need high tensile bolts or will normal bunnings bolts do?
also the pcv valve hole is blocked off with a metal bung, does this mean the pcv valve is internal?. wouldnt have a clue as ive never messed around with explorer intakes.

High tensile is required.
No the PVC cannot be bunged off. It will need the bung removed and the correct fitting put in it.

apparently it came from an au falcon, so i will need to remove the metal bung then fit the rubber grommet and valve from the e series manifold?

If ou can find out the length, diameter and thread type of the bolts you need then I reckon most bolt places like Coventry Fasteners will have something to suit, And in hi tensile too. What ever you do stay away from Bunnings bolts.
