    A engineer or a nut and bolt specialist

    Look on ebay for engineering studs, just as good and far less to buy

    I paid £1 each for mine

    I'd stick with OEM personally, despite the cost. They need to be of a certain hardness, due to the heat the deal with.

    I had some made out of stainless steel quite cheap, but went with OEM in the end.

    I when for OEM once. They were about £16 but they have to withstand a lot of heat and probably a different grade of steel compared to most normal bolts.

    You can get high temp, high tensile ones. I fitted some of the same studs to a mates supra and there still doing fine.

    I have them on mine and will still use them when i go BT as i totally trust them. My mates Supra has been on the dyno with the manifold and studs glowing cherry red.

    I get them form a local place just up the road from where i live

    Bolt & Nut Supplies Ltd, Civils Products, Drainage Merchants

    They do not do delivery but everyone will have a place like this near to them, take a stud into the shop and they will match it if you tell them there is a lot of heat passing through them.

    Pick up the yellow pages and have a look for a place near to yourself's.
