just wondering if they would hold up better. I have heard of ppl doing heads and then needing to redo the job. I wouldnt mind paying a little more if they would be able to take more abuse. i figured most ppl would say to stay with arps and that is what i will most likely do.

Its not the ARP's that cause folks to have to do the headgaskets again. Its improper prep work, not having the heads checked for flatness and cracks, not properly torquing the fasteners and mainly those crappy Black Onyx gaskets that were a horrible failure.

ARP is a quality product that works and works well. Look at the highest horsepower 6.0's around, they're running ARP headstuds. Spend the extra scratch if it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy, but the only thing they're doing for you that ARP's won't, is costing an extra $300.

The H-11's are good head studs but unless you are building an all out pulling motor looking for 1500hp and 2500 torque save your money. Like Matt said most rework after studs is due to improper prep when doing the install. Send the heads out and deck them flat, have the surface prepped for the gaskets. Install hardened valve seats, check for cracks etc. Even H-11's won't save you from improper prep.
