Default Flywheel Bolts and more

I am putting a 5.0L into a 94 and am changing from automatic to manual. The problem I have run into here is that I don't have the bolts to hold the flywheel on. Does anyone know what size and thread they are so I can go get some? Do they require special bolts or can I go to my local hardware store and get some grade 8 bolts? Thanks for your help sorry if its a dumb question. Also where would be the best place to get a new throttle cable for it?

Yes do not skimp on these bolts, they feel the full impact of the engines power, I wouldn't trust grade 8 for a job like that.

As you have obviously seen the bolts for the manual trans are longer than the ones for an auto.....luckily those ARP bolts are cheap and work great...Like already said make sure you use a thread locker to keep them tight and so they don't leak oil....
