Default wastegate bolt sheared. 5/16" JP -> 3/8" US ?

hey guys, ive been slowly working on installing this thing for the past weekend. i came across a sheared bolt on the wastegate, i tried to drill and easy-out it...and the easyout snapped inside the bolt. (just my luck) so i brought it to a local machine shop to have them drill the bolt out and i also asked them to retap it for 3/8" US size bolts instead of the retarded 5/16" jp wannabe bolts.

should i still run grade 8s on it ? or will grade 5's work ok ?

If possible run 8's if you can find them. I run as much high quality grade 8 hardware that I can.

Two words: Ace Hardware. Those folks have an excellent fastener selection. SAE Grade 8, Metric Class 10.9, stainless, the works.

We don't have an Ace, Lowes has a similar though not as grand selection suprisingly.

Online. Mcmaster.com. Search for "Grade 8". Cheap and fast shipping. You might have to buy 50 though. Still under 10 bucks probably.
