    Well your 98 valve covers should be perimiter bolt so your heads would have to be too. Are they?

    Well 98s were the only LS1 f bod that had perimiter valve cover bolts. 99-02 had center bolt. If no specification for "98" was made when ordering you prolly got center bolt heads. Not a big deal but you will need to buy the center bolt valve covers, prolly new coil pack rails too. Shouldn't cost too much. Center bolt is the better setup anyway. Post pics if you can.

    if I were you, I'd hit a local salvge yard. you should be able to pickup the valve covers and coil mount for cheap.
    take the coil brack off and look at the top of the valve cover. center bolt valve covers have 4 bolts in a line right down the center of the cover

    Your gonna need the Center bolt covers for these heads. I run them and they do not make them in the perimeter bolt castings. You can probably find a nice set for 50 bucks in a wrecking yard.
