The EM studs are a buck a piece at the dealer.  The nuts are kinda 
expensive for what they are, but you should replace them, and they are 
cheap compared to the cost of rebuilding your head.  The _bolts_ for the 
intake are generic, so buy those at the loca nut & bolt supply house.

For the EM and IM, I don't think it is necessary to use anything else.
