                  I would assume that when you enter in your car year, make, and model, that it would show the parts for your car and your car only!!!

                  I ordered these and was in a hurry to get my car completed. So much for that.

                  They came in the mail and are for Ford 289-302 only

                      part #8552 head bolts for 1988 Nissan Pulsar as listed in on-line catalog are not correct part. 8552 is for Ford motors. Pls change listing. Huge inconvenience to get the wrong part when trying to meet deadlines.

                        I have this listed under a D17A2 engine for my 05 Civic EX. I believe I only have one head... since it's a single overhead cam... yet there are two sets of bolts. Would I need both, and is this compatible with my engine?
