Ford new head bolt material & torquing ?

Has anyone heard of this? The Tech at the Ford shop told me this. He said the new ones are an upgrade and the new torquing sequence makes them a lot stronger. Told him about the ARP studs, said he has done them but with the new stuff you done have to use the ARP studs. I've read a lot on here but never read anything about this, or I missed it...

Is he trying to sell you on them instead of arp's? If so tell him to shove it you don't want to be doing this job again once you've already done it.

Ask them to show you the spec sheet on the new bolts and make your decision from there.

I'd rather be fishing

That's what I figured, thanks for the info... Just ARP for me (I will ask for the spec sheet just to see what the Tech says)...

He lied or is stupid ?
that sucks

many people tout the new head bolts or better heads ,, when the only change was the locating dowel size ,, and that had nothing to do with better sealing

That's a great idea, too I'll ask for the part numbers of both the old bolts and the upgraded ones. Thanks... I'm checking prices on the ARP studs now so I'll be ready...

sometimes part #'s don't change with a upgrade

ARP's will be around $500 tops with shipping .. so budget that and then be happy with less $

also most shops charge more for the ARP install because it takes more time and effort
