yes mike does sell very good stuff and the ARP arent head bolts they are studs and they will hold the head in place better and are great if you plan on any performance changes especially if you decide to go with a really high compression ratio or forced induction

when i was rebuilding my motor i snapped one of the head bolts and was lucky cause there was a shop near by that only sold bolts and they had everykind you can think of so we went gave him one of the other bolts he matched it up and i walked out with a new grade 8 bolt for only a couple of bucks i think

was I right about the 170 and 250 ci head bolts being the same size? and do you think a hardware store would have grade 8's or 10's to do the job,, I checked with a local bolt shop and they said they don't carry automotive stuff, so I'm kinda assuming the grade 8's and 10's would work



once again thanks for the help/onfo

Someone gave me this company's info for ordering quality nuts, bolts and fasteners for our Mustangs. Might give them a try.
