Not sure what bolt...I have used a heli-coil before and they are strong as hell, or can you just get a longer bolt and use a nut on the other end?

Heli-coil...hard to explain. If you see one it is easy to understand. Google it. But you drill out the hole with the supplied bit, you then thread in a "spring" like piece. You then thread your bolt into the spring. It is very strong, some automakers helicoil certain engine bolts from the factory.
