Arrow Head Studs

Okay Fellers,

Let me ask an easy question: What exactly happens to the stock head studs if too much cylindar power is reached? Do they break, stretch or loosen. And what makes the aftermarket head studs better... are they made of a different alloy steel as opposed to the factory ones? If so what?

Ford AIS Extreme Air Intake
Magnaflow 4" Stainless Steel DP
Autometer Boost, EGT, Trans Gauges
Zoodad Mod(yes you need it on early 99 if you have AIS)
Grand Rocks Dual 5" Miter Cut Stacks
ITP Overboost Annihilator
FPR Shim

the head bolts stretch, alowwing the gaslkets to blow

an after market stud is made up of a better metal, and is stronger, now all the details of the the metal make up is way out of my knowledge range
