newer timing chain guides dont fit my 98gt??

So i purchased a timing gear set from a respectable dealer i believe they are a site sponsor just don't wanna throw them under the bus quite yet, if you wanna know pm me and i will gladly let you know. the other day i went to put everything on my 98 gt when the holes on the guides dont match up to my block. i contacted them about it and they said i had an older romeo engine they also said this was the right set for my car i just had to get a longer bolt for the driver side guide that goes into the oil pump. and drill out the passenger side lower guide hole so it will slide onto the dowel on my block. does this sound right to you guys? or should i send it back and purchase a set that comes with the right guides? im kinda at a loss i want to have genuine ford guides cuz ive heard horror stories about cheaper product on flebay breaking or not fitting right, but they want me to drill out a guide to make it fit.. dosnt make to much sense to me..and considering i spent 250 bucks on it i don't really wanna screw it up and have to buy another set of guides. any help will be greatly appreciated.

Bring old parts to match, at the Ford dealer. When you get it right then return item previously purchased.
