It's just part of doing business, just like comparing an oil filter from the dealer for $28 to the same thing from Walmart for $18.

Just shop around for the best deal. I paid $500 for my ARP's last year.

Sorry man, Got caught up in that work thing, Anyway Stud differences.
It comes down to the forging process and and what materials are used.
In my book ARP are the best. Better hot/cold forging process. But they are all good for our application. If you are planning on building a monster twin turbo mammoth, Then I would buy the "Best". Me personally, I am saving for the ARP"s. But I'll probably be singing a different tune if I blow a head gasket when I could of got them 2 months ago for 330.00.

Hope that helped.

H11 is what you want. I've been hearing bad things about ARP's lately. It seems that they don't like to be reused. I don't know if this is a 7.3 vs. 6.0 thing, but it shouldn't make a difference in my book.


I'd KILL to have a set of studs for $330. :sad:

I'll have to look into the H-11. I say ARP because every Big/Small block I have built I've used ARP mains/rod/heads and they always held up. But then again my highest compression motor was a BB Mopar 383cid at 12.5-1. So I am in no way an expert in diesel head studs.:dunno:
If you really start looking hard at our motors, It makes sense to use precision parts with little to no defects. What's my compression 30-1/ 100-1/1000-1
It's the force of a canon I tell ya.

Thanks for the input DIRK.

Oh well we just bored you for an hour, Sorry man.
:dunno: Product purchase plans for distributor's. Maybe some buy 5 sets and others buy 5000 sets.
There has to be a tear purchase or something

H11 is just a grade.

Your 6.0 is around 18:1 compression. My 7.3 is somewhere around 17:1 to 18:1. The cylinder pressures of the diesel are in a league of it's own.

I too used ARP's on my mopar's without issues. But this is apple to oranges.
