I believe the stainless will be to soft to torque properly and will stretch over time. Might be OK on intake, but head and exhaust would be a no for me.

The two intake bolts are the same length from my memory.

Be interesting to see this come together.

Sounds great.
Did you get the head off yet? I had to make my own spring compressor tool out of a piece of 1" angle. worked well.
I think the bolt probably broke off just because it was a steel bolt inside an aluminum head, corrosion and it was froze up.
Not sure about the gas cap thing.
I know a guy who took a suburban and went completely rat rod, customs exhaust, steering wheel, flat black and red paint job, white walls,. It looked really cool.
