I don’t think anyone ever doubted that big block Chevy motors were here to stay. They have consistently been one of the most embraced motors in the automotive aftermarket industry, and their popularity just keeps growing. As new cylinder head configurations and block designs are constantly being introduced the need for other aftermarket industries to keep up is a must.
ARP never skipped a beat. They currently offer more than 80 head stud kits to cover the countless BBC block/head combinations. The folks in research and development at ARP want to maintain their reputation for being the leading fastener manufacturer in the industry. They have already introduced head stud kits that are designed for the Dart Pro 20°, Edelbrock Big Victor 12°, and Big Victory 24° aluminum cylinder heads.
These head studs are manufactured from premium grade 8740 steel and are heat-treated to 190,000 psi tensile strength. This makes them ideally suited for multiple engine combinations. The threads have been rolled out, not cut, after the heat-treated process, giving them 10 times better fatigue life than other studs. They are far superior to factory hardware and can provide additional clamping force with an extra margin of safety.
ARP is a family-owned and operated company that was founded in 1968. Like all ARP fasteners, these head studs are totally manufactured in-house at the company’s California facilities. They are held to the industry’s most stringent standards. For more information about these products and the rest of their over 5,000 other fastener kits check out ARP’s website.
