Trying to put my head back on my 98 AEB and the new head bolts that ECS tuning sent me have a different bolt pattern than the bolts that were originally on the engine. I need the updated style, I believe its a 12 point poly drive, head bolt tool.

Willing to pay shipping and some cash for your hassle. Located in CT. I'd like to put the head back on this weekend and its been a bitch of a time so far [>_>]

My order from ECS:
Cylinder Head Bolt Set-10 Bolts ES#8307
Set of 10, M11x1.5x96, Victor Reinz brand learn more

its part number 3452 but i would call them to make sure it is the right tool. THey sell two different kinds because they are different sizes between oem and aftermarket head bolts. I just ended up buying both.

Does anybody have experience with the victor reinz brand head bolts, as sold on ECS tuning? I tried calling ECS but they are closed.

Purchased PureMS' tool: http://www.purems.com/products/product.php/II=2105

Heres to hoping it fits the stupid "OEM Replacement" Victor Reinz bolts.
