I was just reading over on the nation last night about this. I think they say the H-11's are stronger but unless your a competition truck the ARP's will be just fine.

H-11's are on my twinned rig, i think they are the best but like the other guys mentioned arp's are good enough for most.

I fitted the ARP's and had trouble fitting them under the injectors and had to cut them down.

I've never seen trouble with arp's under the injectors. The 8 shorter bolts are actually shorter than needed.

Just take your time and use air to blow out/dry out the holes. I haven't had to use a thread chaser on a 7.3, but that wouldn't hurt.

ARP's unless your pushing twins... If you put the right bolts in the right holes you will have no issues with grinding the hold downs...
