Default any reason not to choose this cylinder head stud kit?

i am under the impression that re-using head studs is a bad idea.
so, i checked summit
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/AR...4001/?rtype=10

i assume these are a better choice than bolts.

also, do you guys have a go-to parts supplier, or do you typically just shop around?

How do you get the idea that re-using head studs is a bad idea?
ARP is what most racers/builders are using that I know of.
ARP makes some real nice stuff, I've been using it for years.....

torque to yield bolts are non reusable, arp bolts / studs can be reused many times

(im guessing these torque to yield bolts you mention are the economy line?)

Yes you do NOT want to re-use torque to yield bolts. And no, they are not economy line, they are used out of the factory. The idea is they stretch to slightly change the thread pitch which will bind the threads. It is done to prevent them from backing off and loosen up, obviously you don't want your head doing that.

If you have ever had a broken bolt that you struggled to get out you will not even question the price on a good set of bolts. ARP is great stuff.

If your bolts/studs are ARP, that will be stamped on them very clearly.......

the main points are already said..BUT do you really need to spend 3x as much on studs when regular bolts do just fine...

what are your plans on the motor?

no plans.
great, how would you like to mow my lawn?!

ok but seriously. no special plans. just want it to be reliable. use to have a supercharger, i have an ARP box somewhere that i am guessing means when the heads went in, they put in ARP. will find out soon enough i hope.

You dont need to pull the valve covers to see what bolts you have. The bottom row of bolts are visible. Right by the plugs

revisiting this:
so i have ARP bolts.
this means i can re-use them? they dont make arp bolts that are yield to torque or stretch or whatever?
somebody was telling me i would need to check the engine specs to see what type of bolt is required.

If you have ARP bolts you can re-use them after a good cleaning in solvent.
All the normal stuff about bolts applies to them also.......
