Product Information
ARP Head Stud Kit Subaru WRX STI DOHC 02+

It is for good reason that virtually every top professional engine builder relies on ARP Pro Series head studs for their all-out competition powerplants. Simply stated, there«¸_s not a better stud setup on the market today. For openers, ARP uses a premium grade 8740 alloy that is rated far superior to "aircraft" quality. Then, each stud is placed vertically in special racks and precisely heat-treated to 200,000 psi. This procedure ensures complete heat penetration and the results are far superior to those lesser quality studs from other manufacturers who just dump pieces in a basket and hope for the best.

Following heat-treat, each stud is centerless ground to make it as close to perfectly concentric as possible. This procedure involves about ten very slight cuts and results in an exceptionally straight part. It«¸_s important to note that lesser quality studs are not even centerless ground - the material is thread rolled in bar stock form (mostly before heat-treat, when the material is easier to machine). Because ARP studs are manufactured to such exacting tolerances, you will note that gaskets and cylinder heads literally glide into position and are perfectly aligned - something that won«¸_t happen with inferior quality head studs.

ARP studs are thread rolled after heat-treat, which gives them about 1000% (that«¸_s ten times) better fatigue strength than those studs that are threaded prior to heat-treat (a very common industry practice). It costs a lot more to do it this way, because it«¸_s tough on tooling, but the results are well worth the extra effort. You will also note that ARP offers specially undercut studs for several engines. This procedure (done only to the shorter studs) more equalizes the "stretch" of both studs, which makes for a more consistent clamping force - and one that compensates for head gasket compression when the cylinder heads are installed. This helps prevent blown head gaskets, and assures optimum engine sealing!

Premium quality heat-treated 8740 chrome moly steel head stud kits are available for most every domestic and import applications. You won«¸_t find a better quality stud on the market from any other source. Look for ARP stamped on each stud as your assurance of quality. Clearly, they are the best on the market today, and the favorite of leading professional engine builders in all forms of racing.

"Todd my sales advisor was most helpful and patientā€¦.especially since we were dealing with an unfriendly, unhelpful supplier of some custom made wheels."
TEXT_OF_5_STARS by Gregory Baeder
"Hi. My experience with you has been great. Friendly phone service. Fast turn around time on my order and fair shipping. My items were well protected by the shippers and arrived with no damage in perfect condition. Being that all items were carbon components packaging is particularly important. I'm also impressed with the products' quality. All of the items I ordered were first class. I'm very pleased with my choice to order here with Vivid Racing and will certainly use you again. Thank you."

"Very disappointed with service and Knowledge of a Unitronic chip. I ordered about 3 weeks ago and will barely receive my package today after I was told that it would be shipped to me priority. It came from Canada. I paid almost $20 in shipping charges which is ridiculous. Granted I changed the order, but when I did I asked about what information I needed to provide and they said "nothing." a week later I get an email saying they need more info, which is what I suggested in the first place. I have faith that the chip will be great and you can flash it in your own garage. I will not be using vivid racing though."
