Considering it's not really the gaskets that are the main issue as it is the number of bolts and how those bolts are applied, I find that statement a little hard to swallow. It may be true, it just doesn't sound right to me. I also know that their gaskets are very very finicky about installation and not to mention not cheap, I for one wouldn't chance it when I know for sure that ARPs and stock gaskets will support hp needs up to for sure 575hp maybe 600hp depending on how you make that extra hp.

yeah i have to agree with with Tex on this one..the head bolts stretch, they dont have the tensile strength as the ARP bolts.

It's the factory torque to yield head bolts that are the problems, not the gakets. You will be fine with OEM gaskets and ARP studs IF, and this is a big IF, your heads are flat to begin with.

If the heads are not flat, it doesn't matter what you use, it could be titanium studs, it won't matter.
