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.

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.

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?
