Wonder where I can get ARP studs cheaper than 100 bucks...anybody find any places online? Freakin ridiculous just for bolts, but oh well, it's gotta get done, and ARP are the best.

Has anyone else ever had a hard time with getting around the cams? It was a little tight when I did my re-torque - do you just have to turn the cam a little bit when doing the job in order to get the socket over some of the bolts?

With the cam gear lines at 12 o clock, you should be able to get at all of them assuming youre using a 3/8" drive 14mm 12pt (for the studs anyway, not sure about the bolts.)

BTW, maybe i'm just a retard, but its not a socket, maybe they arent ARP's...

It looks like a Torx type thing :dunno:

I just did this 2 days ago. To turn the Headbolts you need a 12 point socket and a GOOD torque wrench. Don't just use the ones with the dial. And i don't believe you will be able to find good prices rodbolts, Trust me i was looking for about 2 weeks before i went with the one i got for $120 after shipping.

Edit: Opps studs not bolts...:p
