Presumably you wouldnt re-use headbolts unless you were quite despo

Is it better to re-use head bolts or buy a $50 set (new) from ebay?

No. Head bolts are stretch bolts, one use only.

Buy new ones they are only around $40 per set.

Thanks. Head bolts on the way.
Is it true ARP bolts can be re-used?

How many times are you expecting to pull the head off.

Std Headbolts are $30 - $40 a set which is 8 to 10 sets of headbolts v the ARP Set.

Are you talking about arp bolts? Or studs? Cause isnt it an engine out job to remove the head if you have studs?
