Default Case bolts?

Forgive me if this has been touched already but I searched and didn't come across anything (There may have been some info but I have limited time to read).

Has anyone seen the ARP case bolts? Other than a little peice of mind what kind of monster build would you need to have to require the use of these bolts? Has anyone had problems with the stock case bolts? Damaging threads in block or on the bolt itself? Bent/stretched bolts?

O well. I may just buy these anyways just to say I have them.

if you've opened up your stock case more than a few times, that's a reason to replace them....what build # are you on?

I have them as I had planned to strap a 42R on but that's way down the road...so now its overkill for my 35R

That and I imagine I'll be diving into the block several times!

I would think if they aren't over-torqued the threads would be nice and smooth and give a better torque reading. I don' remember if the case uses helicoils or not but that is the question as to how many times aluminium threads can be re-assembled especially if the bolts are over-torqued.

If the case is just aluminium then the bolts will last forever. The aluminium threads in the case will pull out before the bolts can be damaged.

mine will be getting helicoils on the next tear down...forget to clarify that part of the equation. Otherwise, you are right Charlie, the block would normally give first.

I'm just getting ready to do my first build. I saw these and thought that it was overkill, unless the threads on the bolts or the block are prone to damage. They sure sound cool though.

Does anyone know if the block threads are straight aluminum or are there inserts/helicoils already there?

I have stripped out a few bolt holes on the front, they were pure aluminum.

All aluminum. What is the price for those block bolts? And are your sure they give you all the bolts, or just the 8 main bolts?

Like mentioned above, you SHOULD line hone after installing as the forces will change some. Remember a few thou on the mains is a bunch of change...
