Different tensile strength studs. Elite has 3 options from A1 Technologies. I would go with ARP studs. They are cheaper and do the job.

The tensile strength the only difference? I have a stock motor with just bolt ons and i do want to upgrade the turbo in the future with the elite one. I was told that the studs other then the arps are to much and will crush the stock gaskets

Who told you that???

Go with ARP's to save money and get the job done. Be done with it.

Any of the aftermarket stud options are more than sufficient for most power levels. Go with the ARP, very good reputation and perfect for your needs.

As for "crushing the stock gaskets", HOGWASH. We're talking MLS here, not cork. You'll pull the threads from the block before you crush the headgasket too far.
