Ah some sram come with torx now, swear i fitted one guys setup (sram red?) that had alloy torx caliper bolts. No thanks!
Regular shimano ones every shop has a pot full of then, chunky but pretty hard to beat (too chunky for some setups).
Also +1 to regular mtb caliper on road lever setups. Have dealt with several botched flat mount to is or pm mount frames recently, all of them an utter pita.
Shimano says it doesn't work, but it does just fine.
Sent one guy out with older Ultegra levers and mt200/400 calipers as he just wanted the cheapest thing that worked, bet they don't suffer cracked pistons like a lot of the road calipers do. Pads are cheaper too
SRAM Red come with Ti Torx head bolts. They're sized quite small too, to the point where if you use Wera HF Torx allen wrenches it's almost impossible to get good engagement.
Magura MT range uses torx for calliper bolts and leaver clamps
