leftover parts just means you're an efficient mechanic and don't need all the extra crap to keep a car together... at least that's what I tell myself...

NO NO that means you are a bad mechanic LOL. Sounds like the new kids out of tech school say. Try telling that to a owner when you just had his engine apart

Yea! I've built a few VW engines when I was younger and every time I had extra bolts and nuts. But the engines never failed.

Something my Old Man used to always do to his other GM auto service tech buddies was sneak extra gears & springs & stuff onto their workbenches just as they were wrapping up something like a transmission rebuild

9 out of 10 times the missing parts will require a near complete disassembly of the car to get them back in. I think it's an addition to Murphy's Law.

Just run the thing, if the screws are needed, you will quickly find out where they belong. If evertyhing runs fine, well hell you just found yet another easy and efficent way to shave a tiny amount of weight off the the car lol.
