Ok so i searched on here and nasioc, now here is my question. I am getting the grimmspeed ewg and it comes with bolts for the up-pipe, but i have to take the DP off to get to the up pipe, now some of the bolts (from DownPipe to Turbo) are looking a little shady if you ask me. Does anyone have what the dimensions are to get new bolts? I just want to get the measurements so I can get them before I start tear down. Dont want to expect to think I can re-use the bolts cause that will probably not end very well at all.

Thanks guys.

Some of them are studs. I made the mistake of thinking I sheared a bolt and ruined one of the studs and had to replace it. I know the studs are super generic.

I could do that but i was looking more for the sizes something like M10 x 1.25 by 44mm something like that I want to order them from a hardware store so I can get a better grade.
stock grade is fine...theres no reason to get a better grade bolt/stud

i have NEVER seen stock downpipe bolts fail on any car....we're not talking head bolts here

Most of them do... sadly :(

Some of these nuts are expensive as hell too, I remember paying something like $4 for a nut before.
