ARP Head Stud Kits for Big Block Chevy

Manufactured from premium grade 8740 steel and heat-treated to 190,000 psi tensile strength, they are ideally suited for many engine combinations.

The automotive aftermarket continues to embrace the popular big block Chevrolet engine, as new cylinder head configurations and block designs are introduced on an ongoing basis. Fastener manufacturer ARP, which currently has over 80 head stud kits to cover the myriad of BBC block/head combinations, strives to cover the many new offerings and has recently introduced kits designed for use with Dart Pro 20°, Edelbrock Big Victor 12° and Big Victor 24° aluminum cylinder heads.

Manufactured from premium grade 8740 steel and heat-treated to 190,000 psi tensile strength, they are ideally suited for many engine combinations. The threads are rolled (not cut) following heat-treat and have 10-times better fatigue life than studs made through ordinary methods. They are far superior to factory hardware and can provide additional clamping force with an extra margin of safety.

Like all ARP fasteners, they are totally manufactured in-house at the company’s California facilities to the industry’s most stringent standards. For more information: www.ARP-bolts.com or call 800-826-3045.
