any reason not to choose this cylinder head stud kit?
i have heard it on more than one occasion that they stretch or something.
maybe what i heard was just for bolts?
im pretty sure what i have now is ARP, just dont remember if its studs or bolts
will find out soon i hope
torque to yield bolts are non reusable, arp bolts / studs can be reused many times

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 your bolts/studs are ARP, that will be stamped on them very clearly.......
at approximately 11:15 last night i was driving in my car thinking about these studs, then i was like, wait, how will i know if what i have are ARP or not?
i came here and saw this post. amazing.
when talking to me, just assume i know nothing about cars
