I wondered that.

I myself would still use new bolts anyways especially since you are going with a brand new head.

Better to be safe than sorry, it's up to you.

Looks like I didn't specify one key part to that... if every bolt is within a reusable tolerance, you will have to torque it down a greater amount. If it's good to go, there's no reason to buy new ones. If it's not, you don't have a choice.


And cool. what did you get?

I like the idea of the short intake. The PO of my ZX3 had the long one that put the air filter in front of the wheel well. That's how I got the car so cheap. It sucked up water in his parking lot and hydro-locked the engine. Flying pieces knocked 3 holes in the block!
