which head studs?

ford is doing more work on my motor now, and they said they suggest putting in head studs and they will install them for free. I saw that ATS and ARP make headstuds, but there is also a $300 difference in them and was just wondering what everyone else's opinion was on them.

ARP is all you need. They are the most widely used and trusted studs available.
