Head Stud Stripped?

I put on my new ERL manifold and one of the studs just kept on spinning, and spinning and spinning. What is the best was to repair the threaded hole in the head to fix this issue?

Thanks for the help guys!

My local parts store should have the helicoil kit for my thread pitch and size right?

8mmx1.25 is what you're looking for. You're more like to find them at a lower tier / more local store than someplace like home depot or lowes. Your best bet might be a place like Carquest, O'Reilly's, (insert local auto chain here).
