Exhaust re-vamp

ok, so it looks like I have a couple of tiny exhause leaks peakin out on my manifolds, so I'm going to go an replace the gaskets for the manifolds, and I think I'm gunna put new up pipes in it while I'm at it. Then I dont have to deal with it again for a while. So here's what I'm lookin for. Is there anywhere I can get a set of exhaust manifold bolts for my early 7.3? and I found this kit at the powerstrokeshop (Powerstrokeshop.com)

Is this a fairly decent setup for new up pipes?

I like it cause it also comes with hardware and exhaust gaskets.

Any other input would be great.

The main item is I would like to put new exhaust manifold bolts in when I do this, the ones that are in there are pretty rough lookin, so any input on where to get them would be great.

Call Bill at powerstrokeshop.com. I am sure he has the bolts you are looking for. And that kit is everything you need to change the up pipes. Spray everything with WD40 or PB blaster every day for two to three days before you start. It will make life much easier and when you put it back together, anti-seize everything and everything that moves or makes contact with anything. You will thank me later.

yeah, I just picked up the exhaust manifold gaskets today. I started bathing everything in JB80 saturday night. Nor sure when I'm gunna get around to doing it, but it will be soon. I am assuming that all of the exhaust manifold bolts are the same? I really wish that I could say I was looking foreward to this swap.

one thing I was wondering is how are the top of the up pipes held in place? it doesnt appear that there is a donut gasket like in the lower protion. is there a gasket as all up there? I'm just tryin to have everything on hand when I get ready to dive into this, so then I dont get caught with my pants down on a saturday with a whole lot of powerstroke scattered around the shop.
