  If it has 11mm head bolts then NO!  Those are the ones that 
the washers come off of and cracking the block due to "stuff" in 
the bolt hole is VERY common and it doesn't take much!
  If it's 12mm then the washers come with them I believe.  More 
room but still necessary to not bottom out or gall the head.
