I had to pull my passenger side head off to fix a coolant leak issue and some stripped holes, but when I was putting it back together another one of the lower intake manifold bolt holes pulled some of the threads when I was installing the manifold!

I pulled the bolt out, took the threads off, and reinstalled it. Weird thing is, it went to proper torque of 20 ft. lbs. Will the bolt hold or do I have to take it apart again?.... Really don't want to. Thanks.

If it torqued I'd leave it in there. Did you put the lowers in the right spots. IIRC the middle 4 are slightly shorter than the rest of them.
