ARP Cylinder Head Studs. It is for good reason that virtually every top professional engine builder relies on ARP head studs for their all-out competition powerplants. Simply stated, there’s not a better stud setup on the market today.
For openers, ARP Head Stud Kits uses a premium grade 8740 alloy that is rated far superior to “aircraft” quality. Then, each stud is placed vertically in special racks and precisely heat-treated to 200,000 psi. This procedure ensures complete heat penetration and the results are far superior to those lesser quality studs from other manufacturers who just dump pieces in a basket and hope for the best.
