Exhaust manifold bolts

I want to replace the oem bolts with ARP stainless studs when installing my Steed Speed manifolds. Can somebody verify that the bolts are 3/8-16?

Just talked to Tousley, they don't know the size

I do have some of those bolts at home and will be able to check tonight If you don't get an answer sooner.

Yes, Manifold to the heads. I am pretty sure that is what they are. Just thought I'd double check before I order them.

I can pretty much guarantee that they are not 3/8-16. IIRC, they are metric. Like M8x1.0 or 1.5 or something. I replaced my exhaust manifold bolts when I did my head studs with grade 8 bolts. Unfortunately, I don't remember the size but I presume that since the intake manifold bolts are metric (M6x1.0) and every other bolt on the motor (except for v-band clamps) seems to be metric, then I am also guessing that the exhaust manifold bolts would be no different. Again this is just a hunch at this point. I will go home when I get off work and see if i can find the old bolts as I think I still have them and I will check.

Well I found my old exhaust manifold bolts and I checked them with a tap and the threads matched M8x1.25 and when I mic'd the with a pair of calipers, I got 7.91mm. Hope this helps.

The only metric stainless studs ARP makes are 8mm x 1.25 so I guess that's it. $154.74 for 16 studs and nuts. WTF is up with that?
