Hilti Kwik Bolt II has values in their catalog for bolts in grouted filled
block (ASTM C90, Grade N, type I).  However, I do not kind an ICBO report
in the back of their manual for this application.
It is surprising that a building official will not accept a building
product unless it has an ICBO report.  That is a little harsh and
unrealistic in my opinion.
