Put a helicoil in it. You should be able to find them at your local auto parts place or hardware store. http://www.emhart.com/products/helicoil.html Not too hard to do, but you'll almost certainly need to drop the header to give yourself clear access to the hole. I know in the 5.0L Mustang world some aftermarket aluminum heads (either Edelbrock or AFR, I think) come with all the bolt holes helicoiled from the factory, so it's a durable and accepted way to fix (or strengthen) damaged threads. I've used them a couple of times here and there with no problems.
