They fit in the two large threaded holes closest to you in the picture below Old style standpipes and dummy plugs pictured. If yours are hex it's the new style.

Correct. You also said yours had a hex drive. If thats the case you have the upgraded ones. The ols style are two piece standpipe and are square drive. You can see both types in my ""started the bulletproofing endeavour"" thread

oh crap i didnt know the old ones didnt have that, i saw the new ones on bpds web site and figured the old ones were the same. i just watched a youtube vid on a sr master tech and was putting a head back on and put the ones with the hex drive on it, and it got me thinking that mabe when they put the studs in they "hopefully" put in the updated ones i hope

only reason why im looking at doing this is because ive developed a rather small leak on the back of the engine but cant really see where its coming from but is coming from above the head gaskets so theres some good news! and i really dont want to take it to the dealer i had do the studs cause when i took the truck to them for the first oil change to do a once over they forgot to put the oil cap back on so i dont want to take it back and have them forget something again

Hex new, square old, on my 07 the old ones were a 10mm allen, and the new ones were 12mm, and my new stand pipes were still two piece but had the white teflon washers, are there more then one updated versions of the stand pipes? Am I going to have a problem or am I just not understanding what you mean.
