Anyone ever strip the torx heads of the bolts holding the plate on the cam phaser?

I did on two of them and now I need to replace them. The bit holes seemed very shallow. I drilled them deeper to get the bolts out. Should have gotten a hand to hold phaser while trying to break them loose.

Looking for a source to buy a few.

I thought the torx bolts holding the cam thrust plate were just as easy to strip as well. That is why I used an impact driver to loosen them.

@Party340 Thank you so much for the offer. I really appreciate it. I did come across some locally though.

@ChallyTatum My thrust plate bolts are recessed hex, so I didn't have any problem with them. I hear what you're saying about using an impact driver though.
