I'm not a Ford tech, but I use to be a Toyota tech, and we would never use anything other than stock parts for repairs. I don't see Ford "upgrading" their bolts with ARP's or some thing like that.

The question might have been is there a chance they used 05 and up larger headbolts on an 04. I didnt understand it fully but would like to know myself.

I think the only thing that changed was the torque applied to the stock head bolts, and possibly the head bolts were stronger or would not stretch as much, but I don't think the 05+ bolts are 'larger'.

The headbolts are neither larger nor stronger - they are the same. for the commonization, they made some changes, but not to the head bolts.

Changes:
New cylinder head
1. Carrier boss bolt holes M10 x 1.5
2. Injector clamp bolt holes (relocated)
The new cylinder heads have several casting changes including a slight injector clamp bolt hole
relocation (2, figure 1) and the carrier boss bolt hole size and location changes (1, figure 1). New
cylinder heads also use 32 mm cup plugs replacing the old 28 mm cup plugs.
The cylinder head gasket is also new to accommodate the new 20mm cylinder head location dowels. Pre commonization head use 18mm dowels Note: At this time the new cylinder head assembly is not interchangeable with the previously level
head.

For some reason I was thinking they went from a 12mm bolt 03/04 to a 14mm bolt 05/up. I dont know why I was thinking this or where I had heard it. Couldve been one of them voices. dang them.

Dude he's a sponsor so he's gonna try and make a sale. He did awnser the question then offered more advise. If I was a sponsor I would be trying to make sales everytime I got a chance. Look around other sponsors do the same thing. Not gonna say names but I see it all the time.
