bolts bolts bolts!

Ok so I've finally got all the parts I need for my build and I'm ready to go, but I'm lost as to finding some bolt kits or I did find them but they are rediculous in price, I'm looking for water pump/timing cover bolts, motor mount bolts, intake(upper and lower) bolts, and oil pan bolts, Any help or websites/links would be greatly appeciated!

summit racing and jegs. i have had good luck with ebay. i just wouldnt skimp on anything that needs to be strong, like heads or mains etc.. but for most of that stuff you mentioned regular bolts will work.

I don't know what year your car is but they don't make a complete bolt kit for water pump and timing cover for 94-95s , I bought apr kit and 5 bolts didn't fit so what I did was took all my stock bolts and went to home depot and bought the same size grade 8 bolts for my motor and I spent under $20

Hmm, that's not a half bad idea, I never even thought about that, what kind of bolt grade should I look for? Stainless? Or just anything works? This is my first build so I'm kind of clueless and to answer one of your questions its an 87 5.0ho engine
