Y-pipe bolts

When changing my transmission filter last week I had to remove the y-pipe and the crossmember to drop the pan. Not to big of a problem but I managed to sheer off the y-pipe bolts that secure to the muffler (also did the same to the drain plug when torquing it down to the recommended pressure -- another story).

They are press-in stud type bolts and I can't find a part number (they were a pain to get out). Checked RN and Atlantic British with no luck. I'm just going to bolt them back on with similar sized bolts that are rated for heat but don't have the press-in head. Shouldn't be an issue correct?

The y-pipe looks fine so I don't want to drop $500+ on a new one when all I need is a few bolts.

Correct. I ended up welding bolts on to my LWB.
