Default ARP head studs - where to buy?

Hi all,

I did some searching here and found many recommendations for EBS as a source for ARP head studs. I called them today, and they said that the 951 studs are on back order until the end of November at the earliest. I was planning to have my project complete and my car back on the road well before then.

So... anyone know of another good seller that might have a set on the shelf?

TIA!

EBS lists ARP4207 as the part number, not sure if that's an internal EBS P/N or if that's ARP's. Either way, the gentleman I spoke with at EBS today told me that he had several sets for any 911 under the sun available, but that they wouldn't work on the 951.

I appreciate the offer though, thanks!

Yes. More clamping force and they won't stretch

Ultimately the studs are limited by the aluminum threads...

Joshua, do you think my immediate plans really warrant better studs, or am I safe with the stockers?

For a <400rwhp street car, I wouldn't worry about it.

I think there will need to be a good few other things that will begin to fail by the time I get to 400rwhp... 930 clutch with 951 pressure plate for one..
