Check for a vacuum leak at or around the intake. Make sure your hoses are plugged in. Check for your throttle cable isn't binding anywhere. I'm betting on the vacuum leak though.Which 2 screws did get streipped? On the head of the pipe itself? If it's on head, run a tap into the holes to clean up the threads.

chances are it's the gasket around the tranny pan. you'll have to remove the pan, gently scrape off the old gasket (without scratching the metal surface), replace with new gasket, replace the pan. put all the screws half-way in, then tighten screws across from each other.
