Flywheel bolts have Torx head?

I read in a post recently that the later Ranger flywheel bolts have an external Torx head. Can anybody verify this? What size? I am getting ready to install a new clutch and flywheel resurfacing is most likely needed. I don't have a set of external Torx sockets and don't want to go out and buy them if not needed. I prefer to have everything I need up front so my work doesn't have to be disrupted to go buy tools.

OK thanks. That kind of sucks since I will probably never use it again. Maybe I can find a set at Harbor Freight and hope it is strong enough to stand up to a one time use. I plan on using an impact wrench for removal but will install with a torque wrench.

Confirmed again tonight, it is an E12. I got an OEM set from one of the auto parts box stores.....think it was under 10 bucks.
