You can't possibly use stock TPS screws in metal, they are plastic self cutting screws. Find a well equipped ACE hardware store and find the bolts all day long, the places mentioned carry very little metric off the well beaten path. 5 MM. screws as well as 7 MM. can be hard to find anywhere else other than hardware store.

It kills me when people cannot even sort out correct screws, that screams 'problems ahead!'........................................if you gotta ask then questionable whether you can do the work. Or, super lazy there. One or the other. Com'on, you're saying to the world, I cannot put on my part because I don't know what screws it takes! Krikey!

I would say if one has to ask then get off your butt and go get familiar with the screws section....................you NEED it if you are going to work on cars, and even more when you start modding them. A major one of the skillsets needed there.
