ARP stainless bolt kit question.
I priced out stainless bolts from ARP. I want to complete my motor with lots of detail. I found that Home Depot has a huge selection of stainless. Their bolts are not polished and have cast markings on top of them. I took the cast marks off and polished them and they turned out like show quality. The price difference was like 75 % less and a little work but that's fine. My question is am I getting a softer ( less strenghth ) product doing it this way or am I much safer using the ARP product. Remember I am trying to do everything from the intake down to the oil pan. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks
