Default SOHC engine builders

SOHC motor builders.


In recent light people have found a problem with ARP head studs for Subaru's. On the box the headstud kits were marked as available for for EJ 2.2, 2.0 and 2.5 L motors and while they all fit those particular bottom ends, there was a misunderstanding in the deisgn of the Heads leaving the stud kits unusable for the SOHC motors.

Oringial discussion

We have been communicating with ARP about resolving the problem but we need to gauge interest to see how many sets they would need to have produced as this would be a complete custom run for the time being.

these bolts would still have all of the same features over the standard botls such as stronger more durable metal composition resulting is better torquing characteristics and being less likely to stretch as much.

if you have any question fell free to ask of if you would be interested in new Stud kits please let us know as we're trying to get this squared away as soon as possible.


thanks

Brad, I emailed you about a company that did ARP studs with steel inserts in the block for my 00 SOHC motor. They aren't taking new jobs right now, however they could let you know what model # ARP stud they used if you contact them.

Also, I have a new spare set of 99.5mm 8.5:1 JE forged pistons with offset wrist pins, ceramic topped, teflon coated, and Total Seal gapless ring conversion that I need to unload at well below my cost. I can't use them because I sold my RST, and my even if they fit my STi my wife sez NO.

PS: the studs were not for a subaru 2.5L, so it may be that the steel inserts in the block were required to make them work, but steel inserts are still a good idea to be able to torque them to spec without pulling out of the aluminum block.

The timesert steel sleeves machined into the block before installing the studs will be much better than trying to repair the block with a helicoil later, when the stud pulls out while torquing.

An on going group by will begin on monday.

normally a custom run of these would take about 8-9 weeks for ARP to throw in however I've managed to talk them into gettings these done a bit quicker... approx 4 weeks. As I know a few of you are in a hurry to get these.

Larry, I recieved your e-mail I just haven't had a chance to look into it 100% although ARP and I have a good idea of how they got them to work. ARP and I both agree though that it would be best to get a set of studs that worked 100% though with no real modification necessary. I do appreciate the information though, and will investiage it further.

Full details will be available on monday

thanks
Brad

Just to make sure, please link to the post regarding the sales of these, rather then post them FS in here. Approxomate pricing is ok, but selling directly from this thread isn't.
