They'd also be available at most any wrecking yard, I'd guess.  '96 and later trucks (subs and tahoes, pickups, etc.) with a Vortec 350.  And lots of cars and trucks ('87 and later) had center-bolts, too.

VikingVette:  the Ace plan worked.  $10 bought me (8) 1/4-20 x 3 1/2 stainless bolts and washers. They're just regular hex head, not Allens, but I think they still look pretty good.  (they did have allen cap screws, but they didn't have the half inch sizes and they cost 3 times as much). 

Middle bolt is original, other two are the new ones:



Pic also demonstrates the use of Calyx exhaust manifold dressing.  I'm pretty impressed with that stuff so far, but my camera flash highlighted some areas I missed!
