Default PT Cruiser GT Valve Cover Bolts

Help! I am deep into reassembly of my 2003 PT Cruiser GT after installing a new head gasket. I had the valve cover bolts laid out on my work bench in the order in which they went back in. A cat jumped up on the bench knocking over the bolts and scattering them on the floor. This wouldn't be much of a problem except that on the GT there are two different types of bolts used. There are nine bolts total. 5 of them look like a standard bolt then there are 4 that have a stud coming out of the top.

My manual provides a diagram of the tightening sequence, but no explaination where the "stud bolts" are located. I have looked at parts diagrams online and have seen no mention of these bolts. I have even asked friends with PT Cruisers to pop their hood so I could take a look, but it seems as though if the engine is not a 2.4l turbo they don't have the 4 "stud bolts".

What I need is for someone with a PT Cruiser GT to go out and pop the hood, take a look at the valve cover bolts to see if there are two different types of bolts and if there are, please tell me where the ones with the stud ends go. Thanks in advance.
