You broke a bolt removing the throttle body or you broke one puting everything back together.

That would be my luck too.

Let others chime in before you do anything drastic. The only fix that comes to mind is drill and re-tap.

And get rid of the spacer, they are just a paperweight where FI engines are concerned or just about the equivelent of the Tornado intake piece.
