You dont need to pull the valve covers to see what bolts you have. The bottom row of bolts are visible. Right by the plugs

revisiting this:
so i have ARP bolts.
this means i can re-use them? they dont make arp bolts that are yield to torque or stretch or whatever?
somebody was telling me i would need to check the engine specs to see what type of bolt is required.

If you have ARP bolts you can re-use them after a good cleaning in solvent.
All the normal stuff about bolts applies to them also.......
