I am aware of ARP studs but am not convinced that they are any stronger than a grade 8 bolt. Plus the local speed shops want $$$$$ for them and this cost me a total of $2.38 after a 9.9% tax rate. I know I get what one pays for but $10+ for an oil pump stud is a bit steep IMO..
Thank you for the advice, should I have any issues with the locktighted bolt I will pick up an ARP stud kit.
