Same deal with the head bolts - torque to yield, so throw them too and use new ones.
Smear a small portion of RTV blue (or similar) between the top timing cover rubber seal (use a new one)and the head gasket (not on the gasket, but in the 2 gaps on each side between them).

were only the AU headbolts torqued to yield or all of the e-series as well?
