If you spend the money for ARP studs and don\'t
_exactly_ follow their installation instructions, you've just pissed away the $100 you spent.
These are carefully engineered products that require accurate torque to get the clamping force you want.
If you've lost the instructions, give them a call. You're also going to need to buy some Permatex high temperature thread locker (white tube) otherwise the rear headbold will leak like a MoFo.

Re: I usually torque them up 110%. No problems.
the reason why i asked was i wasnt going to use arp head studs i found a place with head studs and also bolts with almost the same specs as arp for lets say $40 aud comapered to $200 aud...
my friend has a pair from the same place i was going to buy the bolts , the fact is that he broke his head studs on his car and had to go and get new ones he paid $30 and his been boosting to 20+ psi and hasnt had any probs but its a not bm its a z18 turbo nissan motor so i thought well it should be fine for my application aslo he been drving it for a while
your thoughts guys
