ARP head studs: what can they handle

I have the following mods:
ARP head studs
4" turbo back mbrp
AFE cold air intake
EGR delete
58V. FICM

I'm just wondering what kind of power I can handle. Also what kind of egt temps are dangerous, and what is normal?

About to purchase sct x3 and getting Eric's tunes from innovative.
Currently have edge cts running on tow mode. Will use cts only for gauges after I put sct in.

Cory.

I am not sure how much heat and pressure the ARP head studs can handle but I can tell you that with my old Banks 6 gun on speed loader fast lapping a buddy I have seen 1338 degrees. And that was done with the stock torque to yield bolts at 32psi. Knock on wood all is running great for 40k miles. I was told that much more then 1500 degrees F EGT will decrease engine life. As for boost I would guess that you are not going to be able to generate enough boost with a stock turbo to cause any issues.

'07 CC S/B Black by chrome XLT, Cab rack and UWS toolbox(s) and a Rhino in the bed. MBRP S/S 4" dual kit. Banks cold air intake. Zoodad mod. SCT touch screen, Banks intercooler w/ highram. Mag-Hytec diff covers front and rear and tranny. EGR delete. BDS dual steering stabilizer Toyo A/T's 285x75R18 4.5 D/R lift... Warn transformer w/ 9.5k winch

'99 5.0 Xplorer w/ 32" silent armors, TM headers, MAC intake, Dynomax exhaust with 234,xxx miles.

Im running nearly the same setup and from my understanding by talking to innovative about the SCT x3 tunes is that with stock turbo and studs all the tunes are safe but you need to do a blue spring for your fuel system.

04 Excursion 4in lift
SCT X3 econ tune
Edge insight
Blue spring mod
4in MBRP SS no cat
Adrenaline Hpop
ARP's
Ficm repair with Atlas 40
CCV mod
BPD delete and water pump
need high idle mod soon
Pioneer DD head and 1k amp pushing two 12's and it was good.

You should have no issues at all with that setup. i wouldn't let the egts get over 1400 tho for the turbos sake. head gaskets should be no worry with arp's

Are ARPs "aged" studs the ones that have a bit of a copper hue to them?

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.
