Did ARP make natural metal headstuds?... and a question on warren sticks

I have the 6.0L torn down and noticed the head studs (which were installed before I took ownership) are silver... not black like the ARPs I have seen (but they have the hex key drive recessed into the stud and 12 point 18mm nuts like ARPs). Did ARP ever produce studs without the black coating? Any other stud manufacturers out there?

Also, 3 injectors are showing weakness so I'd like to upgrade while the engine is out. I see guys running 155/stock injectors and I would like to do the same. Just wondering where you've purchased them and if you would do business again... and if you've had any problems. Also, how long should one expect to wait for injectors? It will most likely take 7-10 days for the machine shop to do my heads but I don't want to be without the truck for a month waiting on injectors.

There are no markings on the studs. They do not look stressed or beat up and I would like to re-use them... it would be a shame to throw good parts in the garbage because I don't know what the torque specs are. The studs were installed a few years ago.

Near the hex socket on the stud it should say ARP 2000 I believe. Haven't seen mine in awhile thankfully. Lol.

I did injectors through Warren Diesel and so far no complaints. Great customer service. Took about 10 days but I was told they were moving the shop so that caused a delay. No big deal and I don't feel like they were lying about it.

H11's are bigger and require the hole to be drilled and threaded correct? Call ARP. They should help.

Tomorrow after work I'll make a few phone calls. These are natural metallic not gray/silver coating like the A1s pictured. Maybe they're specials from the hardware store? lol

No, H11's are the same size. No drilling or tapping required. My H11's from Elite are the silver color that the OP is talking about...
