Up pipe bolt sizes calling all techs

Well I'm gonna have my trans out on Sunday for my new clutch so I figured its a good time to install the delete pipe for the up pipes since I just blocked it off initially. So my question is does anyone know the bolt size for the up pipes to manifolds and also the delete pipe bolt sizes. I have access to a variety of bolts metric and standard at work so any help is appreciated.

Just my .02 but for that kind of bolt I would get the correct hardware direct from Ford. Cost a few bucks but I wouldn't want to trust that kind of job to a "bolt I had laying around that threaded in ok".

^^^THIS^^^ Always replace with the highest grade you can.

I said screw (no pun intended) the stock bolts and replaced mine with grade 8 hardware. I actually have mine off and on a shelf in the shop since I'm slappin' on my ceramic coated up and y-pipe. I'd go check em' for you, but I'm in my underwear, in bed, next to the wife and its cold outside. I'll get you lengths in the AM.
