Did you or did you not take the stud with you....
Just do that...

I would make them thicker than the picture of that HKS manifold. I have seen thin cuts fuse back together over time

In the nuts and bolts section they'll have a bin labeled "automotive studs." Those are what you wanted. Dont worry about the class/grade, just get the correct size. Don't ask for help in stores like that, you'll get help from 90 year old men on their last breath who don't even know their **** from apple juice.
