ARP vs Elite studs

I'm looking to save a little money by buying the arp studs I'm looking at doing 60hp injectors, 310 tune and a little nos....do you think that the arp studs would be sufficient? I would think with the wastegate that they would be just fine but I'm looking for other opinions.

Yeah, they would probably be sufficient and cheaper, unfortunately, as far as I know they aren't out.

ARP's are plenty sufficient to keep your heads in place. Shawn Ellerton's (Redneck 6.0L) is putting out over 1000 HP and his heads are secured using ARP's. No need to spend the extra coin on H-11's.

I dont want to get into a pissing match, im going off of what ive read and heard. Ive never seen this in person.

Their have been a few complaints about ARPs streching. Never has there been a claim of this on H-11s.

ARP's 6.4 studs are not out yet.

But I agree with Shawn. For a 6.0 they are more than adequate
