What one did you get? I think the AU valve stem seals won't fit EF's.
All the others should be right, but not 100% sure on the rocker cover gasket.

I have never measured them, but i can only suspect the AU one to be thinner, since the AU had a bit more compression, than previous.

Yeah the 98 were different, they were running the AU style head changes.
The Hybrid engines had a "Glass bead blasted" looking rocker cover, no paint on it. Just a flat silver colour.

Yeah, they can pressure test the head with out the valves in it. To do it properly, the coolant (usually soluble oil) they use in the tester should be at 98dgsC.

What condition were the valves & seats in? Were they pitted at all?
If so, you should get the valves & seats reground.

Don't be a tighta**e. You could also get the inlet valves back cut as well, this improves flow. Its an old trick from way back. If theres pitting, grind 'em. No stuffin around, no probs then. You gonna replace the t'stat too?
