HINT, Anti-seize compound is your best friend.
Ya, I got the bolts from NAPA, but in the end couldn't get the damn things out of the uppipe, it took me 10 minutes wrestling the first one with the double nut and aerokroil technique to give up and just attempt to put the turbo on with the studs. I had an extra pair of hands and it turned out to be pretty easy anyway as I had all the inlet fittings loose from changing that out.
