I have built a complete new engine and I am about to start attaching the components such as motor mounts, starter bracket, exhaust manifolds, water pump, ect. Are there any type of special bolts that need to be used other than a quality grade 8 for any of these parts? Case hardened, stainless steel (I know they are softer), or someting else, any suggestions or comments?

grade 8 will work just fine and here's a little tip to help you when you have to take that stuff off some day get some hi-temp anti seize and put it on the treads before you bolt them on i used to have alot of exaust bolts beak off tried that and never had anymore troubles since
