I've had very good luck with slip over connections and stainless band clamps to seal it in. V-Bands would be my next choice.
Do you have a link for the stage 8 bolts?
Grade 8, not stage 8.

An all steel locknut works great or the cheap and easy way is to double nut it. Put the first nut on and tighten. Then while holding the first nut with a wrench tighten a second nut against it. I have seen this done even in high end race cars

I have ran BBC's in my Gbody's with solid mounts for many years and I have never once had a Grade 8 bolt, nut and lock washer ever rattle loose.
IMO you don't need anything fancy to get the job done.
