Stripped Rocker Arm Bolt...

I want to repair the threads in the head on my 2001 Chevy Malibu. The bolt where the rocker arm screws into the head is stripped from being over tighten.

What size drill bit will I need to drill out the old threads?
What size tap will I need to make the new threads?
What size helicoil will I need to use for the Rocker arm bolt?
Where can I get this stuff for a low price?
