This Kit was designed for hardcore drag racers running high boost levels that need more clamping force and tensile strength than the typical 8740 chromoly studs on the market. If you are looking for the best option, you've found it as these are 25% stronger than any other available off the shelf Head Stud Kit for your Honda/Acura!
These studs are manufactured specifically for us by ARP and utilize an L19 material that is much stronger than the typical 8740 chromoly and yields a tensile strength of 260,000 psi. They are also provisioned with a hex broach on the top of the stud for ease of installation and enabling you to install them with the cylinder head on the car if necessary.
