Good work!

The first bolt is always the hardest, but after that it will get easier with more enthusiasm.

just starting to build my motor for my turbo setup and was wondering if anybody has used studs instead of bolts to hold it down a bit firmer.
also what are people finding works best in the head gasket department.

just hoping for the moment that the stock internals hold up till i get the motor finished.

sorry about last post frizz must have been after my 6th can
i ment the head bolts are s**t from ford so what about the arp studs are they any better for holding the head down.

u recon the au gasket is good enouf for 15psi what about the copper ones going around.

as for u MAT 158 u are not worthy u are not worthy u are not worthy u are not worthy. sorry u will have a turbo one day

yes arp studs would be alot better but, i think they need to be custom made.

yeh au will be fine on 15psi. ive been working on a 18psi tune on my car and hasn't complained once.

copper head gaskets are s**t, and would never recommend that anyone uses them.
