17' TLX (V6) - Torx/Star Head?

Hello,
I don't want to strip the screw head that holds air intake boot.
Anyone know what the exact type and size of the screwdriver and/or socket that should be used?
<< See Pics, Below >>
Thanks!

This is NOT a Torx/Star Head.

It is a Mortorq head. It is Phillips' better more robust head used in automotive and aerospace applications.

Just one more type of screwdriver/socket bit to keep in the tool box.

Looks like you can use 10mm socket on it no problem.
