New torque converter not studded??

Hey guys, need a quick answer here...I'm swapping in a 4r100 in place of my dead E4OD. However, the torque converter that came with the 4R is not studded, instead has threaded holes for bolts. Can I just get some like grade 8 bolts and bolt it up that way, or do I need to find studs and use nuts like the stock E4OD is setup. And if I can use bolts, should I use lock washers or something with them? Here's a pic of the new converter. New torque converter not studded??-imageuploadedbyautoguide1357008225.445570.jpg

I know the humvees I worked on used bolts. I'd use some flanged bolts in the strongest variety you can find.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

Thanks guys. Yeah was planning to see what Ford has for them because I have to go there anyway to get the flange gasket where the transfer case bolts on. None of the regular parts suppliers like advance auto or autozone seem to carry it.
