What are you using for head gaskets? You got any pics of the heads? I've seen a set of studded gaskets leak because the previous owner had a set of fire-rings installed and they where done very poorly.

There has been a real big debate on another forum about what value to torque these studs to. While they might not agree on what the value is, almost everyone agrees that the 210ft-lbs is in sufficient. IMO if you are going to exceed the 210, I wouldnt go more than 20% as that is probably a safe assumption that the margin of safety is no doubt more than that. That would put you at about 250ft-lbs. I would start there and see if it holds. JMO.

checked or decked? difference between the 2!

arp said if you exceed the torque spec you will end up yeilding the stud and end up with bolts that are no better then the stock ones!
