Why is it that these sets are only sold with 12 bolts and not 16 like we need. I found some for a decent price and the only way i can get the right amount is to by to sets of 12. Has anyone else noticed this, it would be nice to get some so i can get started on my header/exhaust build.

3/8" x16, aka coarse thread. Get the 3/4" long bolts if you have thin flanged headers and the 1" long bolts for flanges thicker then 1/4"

Any hardware store should have them. Usually $1.00 to $1.20 each.

They sell them in sets of 12 becouse thats what the chevys take, and they use the same bolts as the SBF

will stick it to you hard for a couple of bolts.:goodfinge
well, they don't sell them individually to my knowledge, but a bag of 20 is probably around 5 bucks.

Also some stores have tools and run decent sells on the weekends

FWIW I got 2 sets at Checker or Autozone for like $12-14. The extras even came in handy once.
