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.
As many of you know, under higher combustion pressure, having your cylinder head(s) effectively clamp down the block surface is absolutely critical. Therefore, choosing a brand of head stud that you trust to get the job done is just as important.
Manufactured from premium grade 8740 steel and heat-treated to 190,000 psi tensile strength, they are ideally suited for many engine combinations.
Automotive Racing Products, Inc. (ARP) has taken over sponsorship of the prestigious AMBR (America’s Most Beautiful Roadster) award, beginning with the 2020 edition of the nation’s premier hot rod show. Additionally, the manufacturer of high performance fasteners has gotten behind the Al Slonaker Memorial Award. Named after the founder of the famed Oakland Roadster Show,
JE Pistons has announced the official rules for the 2020 AMSOIL Masters of Motors competition. Masters of Motors is set to take place at JE Pistons’ Mentor, OH headquarters September 28th through October 1st, 2020 and all applications are required to be submitted by April 1, 2020. The official competitor list will be announced on April 10th. In addition to the rules,
Diesel performance enthusiasts can now take the popular 6.7L Ford Powerstroke engines to new boost levels thanks to ARP introducing head studs made from Custom Age 625+ material—which is nominally rated at 260,000 psi tensile strength.
Affectionately known as the “Mini-Duramax,” the potent 2.8L turbocharged, 4-cylinder diesel engine has become a popular option. This has given rise to the aftermarket developing many power-enhancements designed to increase the 2.8’s performance such as ARP’s more robust head studs.
Measuring bolt stretch provides a 100% reliable method of getting the correct clamping load. ARP has taken accuracy to the next level with the introduction of a digital stretch gauge that measures to the ten-thousandth (0.0001″).
ARP’s Performance R&D division has just released six new dual size Ring Squaring tools designed to make fitting piston rings as accurate as possible.
Setting a ring absolutely perpendicular to the bore is assured through use of the ARP Squaring Tool, which registers on the block deck. This is far more accurate than using a piston or other device that can rock in the bore and place the ring at an angle.
ARP has developed an elegant, reliable solution for installing fan spacers that are employed to facilitate the removal of clutch fans or simply position a “direct drive” fan closer to the radiator for optimum cooling.
ARP has expanded its selection of bulk metric bolts to cover sizes from tiny M6 with a 12mm underhead length to a big M12 x 100mmn UHL offering.
