Question Header Stud Threads

I've got a 99RS with 4th gen Borla headers. Does anyone know the thread pattern for the studs used to hold these things to the head? When I installed them last summer I just used the original parts, where the nuts had rusted to the studs. A year later I've finally got the cat. inefficiency CE light, but the dealer said they'd replace the cats under warranty despite the aftermarket exhaust. When looking under the car one stud/nut combo has come out alltogether and I'd like to replace it before I taking it to the dealer so they don't use that as a reason to not give me cats. Thanks!

You're lucky. Even Exeter up in NH, they look at my headerback exhaust and hand me a $200 bill when I came in with a problem with my O2 sensor. (despite how often they go on our cars)

I had to buy nuts the other day. Be prepared the OEM flange nut is like $7 retail from the parts counter.

Make sure you get a heat treated grade 8 or better stud/nut. A drop of lock tite on the stud and anti-seize on the nut... Check your auto parts stores M10x1.25 is not very common in hardware stores. Also check the phone book for "specialty fastener" stores
