SOURCE: how many bolts hold Mitsubishi
there are only 10 head bolts on that engine. the 3 bolts your talking about, aren't bolts they are plugs and shouldn't be removed.
if your pulling the head with the intake manifold attached, make sure you removed the bolts from the support bracket under the intake manifold.

New Headbolts are recommended
Long bolts are torqued to 46'lbs + 90 degrees.
Short bolts are torqued 43'lbs + 90 degrees.
Start in the center, and work to the edges, torquing the bolts in two stages.
Rockers are torqued to 22'lbs.
