You are going to find many OEM bolt and studs are not standard normally available lengths. The threaded portions are also often not standard, many have unthreaded shanks before the threads start. The underhead fillets are also important for strength in a lot of applications and will be hard to duplicate using common off-the-shelf fasteners. In my opinion, the only practical way to go about this will be to contract w/a manufacturer to produce what is needed. The thing is ARP has this covered already.
