Exhaust header bolts?

I just bought an OBX 4-2-1 header off e-bay, I'm assuming I'll want to replace the bolts for the header.

So that leaves the question, what size and thread are the bolts, or would it just be easier to get replacements from the dealer?

Need is a bit strong. I don't think you need to swap the bolts... I just did a race header swap this weekend, kept the stock bolts, and everything is fine. But swapping the gaskets is a MUST. I went and got the stock gaskets from my local dealership. They were $20.
... still plays with cars ...
