ARPs are what most owners go with, though I haven't heard of A1s.

Whichever you go with, make sure to use OEM gaskets.

ARP's are the most recommended.

ARPs I don't think the A1 H11s are worth the extra money.

Go with arp's. The arp custom age 625+ and the H11 are hardened tool steel head studs. They are designed for applications where the heads are going to be pulled off and retorqued many many times. Mostly for competition pullers and racers where they will generally pull the heads for inspection after every major day at the track. For the average joe that plans on only ripping this apart 1 time then you only need the ARP 250-4202 head stud kit, and as stated earlier they are on national back order. They also can be reused I think up to 5 times meaning you can rip your heads off the truck 5 times and reuse your original set of arp studs each time as long as you only torque them to the recommended specs.
