Another guy did this exact thing not long ago. He was told to drop the bottom oil pan and check if it's in there. The other option is drop the upper oil pan but that required dropping the transmission. A tech told him most likely it will fall through to the bottom oil pan eventually. The hole it fell in is the oil return as it goes through the turbo so it shouldn't hurt anything. If it's a large bolt it may get wedged and stick there. Are you 100% sure it did go into the hole and not somewhere else. Who's tunes did you get? I bought the s363 kit last January and had to get different tunes since the first I got had really poor spooling and low mpgs. I have the video on Youtube for the s363 installation. I definitely recommend the intercooler piping kit to help the spool up and top end power.
