Ford bolts or arp's?

I have read the forums till my eyes bleed.... and I know what 99.9% of everyone will say, but i still have to ask: Putting new head gaskets on my 6.0 and I have been told by a ford tech that there is no need to use the ARP head studs any longer because he says ford revised the head bolts and they are not a problem any longer. So my question is has anyone heard of this? Has anyone used these new revised head bolts he speaks of? I am still leaning toward the arp studs but he sure talked up these new ford bolts! what to do?

I would NOT use the Ford bolts.
For $400 it is not worth taking a chance.
Just make SURE you get your heads checked and machined.

LOL--Ford "revised" the torque to yield headbolts back in 05. They have been nothing new for at least 5 years. Go with the ARP's and don't look back.

Hahaha.. This thread made me laugh and cry at the same time.

Asking whether you should use TTY bolts or ARP studs is like a girl asking you if you want to watch The Notebook or go back to her place and get busy.

I've got no problem with the Ford HGs.
There is a 6.0 making over 850hp with ford HGs and ARP studs.

And I wanna know who the .1% is that says TTY bolts are better than the studs.
