Extreme studs.com

Has anyone heard of these studs. I read on some of the cummins forums and it seams like they like them. They said they are comparable with arp 625s. If they are then they are a lot cheaper.

this is an area that I would hate to try out and see. why not stick with the companies that do testing on there stuff all the time like arp to make sure they have the best quality stuff out there. Cheaping out on this area of the motor to me just seems alittle crazy to me but some are willing to try

Think I am missing something..
The only place that has the "extreme studs" (according to their own website) is Diesel Auto Power and they are $575.00
Browns Diesel has ARP's for $450

I read that they are comparable to the arp 625s if that is true then they are a lot cheaper. I was just curious about these studs.

Yes you did miss something... Price is not everything. Many people are looking for a better option out there. Standard ARPs don't seem to be holding up anymore in high HP trucks. Many Many People are finding out that there OEM head gaskets with proper machine work and standard ARP studs are not holding up anymore. Over time they start to leak again.


This might fill in the gaps. The tensile strength is different.

normal ARP = 220,000 $450
extreme studs 240,000 $575
A1 H11 = 240,000 $750 (out of business)
aged ARP = 250,000 $1300



So the real comparison that you should be doing is...


aged arp for $1300
or
extreme studs for $575

I always wonder with all these threads and high-hp uses......how much can the stock block take? Not the cylinders handling HP, and such, but the block where your stud threads into....at the same torque, higher tensile strength studs will hold the head to the block better than lower strength right? Because the higher strength stud has a much higher plastic range, so at the same torque, it's actually pulling harder on the block threads than the lower one (because the lower one will absorb some of it)......aaaaaaaaaggggggghhhhhhhh I'm having a hard time putting my thoughts into words here, and I may be overthinking this anyhow, but hopefully someone gets what I'm saying?
