Dave ,

I'de advise you to do some  searching  on ebay .
UK and /or  DE would be my first choices .
There are numerous vendors out there that sell engine parts , bolts , full 
gasket sets
t-belt kits etc quite often at real bargain prices .
Most of the time they cross reference to the genuine audi p/n's

Intake and exhaust studs , bolts and nuts are M8  wich is very common in 
europe .
Might be a bit harder to find in the us though .

If all else fails , I can always arrangetio buy them here  and ship them .

Oh and btw ,  to torque the headbolts , make sure you het the right 12 point 
tool .

Belgium .
