: You reuse the bolts from your stock baffle. Make sure that the rubber flapper valve is positioned the same as the stock one (You will be buying a new engine if not). You will see what I am talking about once you get the oil pan off. One more thing is use Bake Clean and then use lock tight.

Just to add to Andrew's post. Use LocTite RED which is the permanent variety and allow the installed baffle to sit for quite some time for the LocTite to dry. Overnight if you can.

And yes that rubber flapper thing is EXTREMELY important. If it didn't come with one buy a new one at the dealership.
