I believe you should be able to see a few bolt/studs on the bottom side.

Drivers side valve cover the front two bolts/ studs are visible..

If they look like a plain bolt with a head they are OEM, if they look like a stud with a nut holding it down with the stud sticking up past the nut they are ARP head studs
