We all have the same PDF catalog you clipped the image above from. didn't see it specified or even listed and not attributed to the diagram. Maybe it never came up previously in discussions because it is rarely if ever a service part. Maybe if you ask someone to look at their car they can provide the head style and based on the application you can determine a fastener length that will work properly.

That's what I was hoping for. Many people here who work on these engines every day.

No - the corresponding hole in the block is an M10 thread.

I went out and looked at my car the one cap screw is a regular old hex head black (oil finish) cap screw. Not a socket head cap screw. The other seems to go through the engine mount cross-section or some other nearby sheet steel part and its head is not visible and can probably only be seen if one drops the engine or removes the rear bumper cover.
