All ARP fasteners are manufactured in-house at California facilities to the industry’s highest standards.
All ARP2000 studs are centerless ground, heat treated prior to thread rolling and machining, nominally rated at 220,000 psi tensile strength and are reusable as compared to the OEM Torque to Yield (TTY) head bolts.
Manufactured from premium grade 8740 steel and heat-treated to 190,000 psi tensile strength, they are ideally suited for many engine combinations.
