i had the opportunity to use mike cove's super duty head bolts today when i installed a new head gasket on my turbo3 engine. they were packed with a set of hard washers and were well oiled right out of the bag.

the bolts are hex head cap screws for a positive drive and were easy to install. mike indicated that he had torqued his to 60 psi, a shade over 10% more than the spec on the stock stretch to torque bolts. the feel was more positive when the set torque was reached, something that was easily noticed after having felt the stock bolts "yield" right at the 54 pound mark.

i'll be honest with you, i never thought that i'd be impressed with something as mundane as a set of 8 bolts. the truth of it is that i am so impressed that i felt compelled to write this for you to read. again, mike has brought us something very worthwhile to upgrade the g10 3 cylinder engine and i'd highly recommend that you pick up a set to use the next time you have the head off for a repair or upgrade.
