I still only see one bolt on the hat (even in your picture) but that is probably the least of my worries.

Thanks so much for the help.
No problem at all.

I've worked on a few 4.7's and a few 5.7's and I can't remember what the differences are in their entirety. Just remove the bolt you see (may be one under the hat on the passengers side? Trying to recall... ). Then slip the hat towards you off the TB. Remember to disconnect the PCV and IAT harness first, then remove the sensor once you have the hat in your hands. The hat is a huge restriction, so that has to go.

Keep this measurement in mind when buying collars as well.
