@GillaFunk, ARP hardware is absolutely top shelf. Do you know ARP sells a thread lubricant and it is so effective at reducing friction that ARP publishes their own torque ratings which are lower than OEM? Otherwise, ARP recommends lubing with engine oil unless the bolt holes are exposed to water jackets or oil galleys in which case you need a thread sealant. I've been to your town. Very cool and eaten at Grizzly Grill in Blairsden.
