Most of the time you can use stock exhaust manifold bolts, but if you're wanting to buy new, just take one of the bolts out and take it to your nearest nut and bolt supply store. I dont remember what size they are right off the top of my head. I would wait until he has your header made before you buy the bolts. If the flange is thinner than stock, then you'll need to buy shorter bolts.
Tunns... Doc is on point with his advice. Wait until you get all that set up. I'm seeing this is only about 5 years late now, but you get the idea. Also, I don't want to say it's easy to make, but a torch(acetylene) and a grinder with a piece of say 1/4" steel will work. Just measure a piece out that's about 2" wider top/bottom and sides and cut to what you need, grind it smooth, drill the holes and make sure those bolts fit in the holes properly. I made a set from flange to flange for an old '98 Neon I owned. Worked like a charm.
