I added the throttle spacers last night and the bottom security screw is stripped. Is this a real issue or could I go with a little larger screw and call it a day. It looks like the assembly doesn't come completely apart and the throttle is $300+ so I'm trying not to replace it if it's not necessary.

Well I went to home depot and bought a #8 screw and it worked. The #8 screw was .68mm larger than the one that came out of the throttle so since the part it screwed into was some type of soft plastic the larger screw worked. When I took the original screw out it had the plastic embedded in the threads so to larger hole was probably a pretty close match to the #8 screw.
