You are correct.  The torx worked fine but the allen head worked better.
After some judicious use of an allen wrench and a vise grip the throttle
body is out.  Thanks for your help

All the bolts on the throttle body are ALLEN bolts...or at least they
be. They're all the same size so whatever you used for the top will work
the bottom. I usually have to use a regular old allen key for one of
them as 
my allen socket won't quite fit.
