plate questions

alright i put in my plate yesterday, i like it but i got two questions, first what is the size of the break off screw so i can get a bolt to replace it, i chewed it up pretty good trying to get it off, so i need a bolt to replace that

second question when i get into it i get good smoke, but it will blow out smoke rings is that a bad thing?

I'm pretty sure thats right. I know its an m6, and 1.5 sounds right, but its been a while since I've done it, so I don't remember. I usually take it in to the hardware store and match it up. I also usually replace all 4 with allen key bolts. You are talking about the tamper proof break off bolt on that holds the AFC housing down right?

Lopey idle and smoke rings isn't a great sign. Are you getting much haze at idle?
