1989 2.3L Intake Bolts?

Got another one for you. Does anyone know of a pre-selected set of intake manifold bolts for a 1989 2.3L? The specific bolts I am talking about would be the ones that bolt up the lower intake to the block. I am hoping that ARP, Edelbrock, or another manufacturer makes the pack that I can just order as opposed to taking one out and then running to multiple stores trying to match it up. Since I only have weekends to do projects I hate to add running all over the state looking for items on top of actually doing the work. I've learned to try and gather everything before hand in case something bad happens, like a bolt strips or breaks. I've tried to look on the ARP website but I guess since I'm not a professional I have no idea of how to match them up. Or maybe there is a better website or trick to figuring it out that I don't know.!

Stainless steel allen head bolts for basically every component on your engine. $40 shipped. That's about $1 each. Sure will make it look purdy!

Or, just call around and make sure some establishment has them in stock. The 8 intake to head bolts are M8x30mm 1.25 pitch. Here's a helpful fastener list.......
