Block guard ???
If you run 8560 rpm do you need a Block guard for the block? is this needed?

It seems to me like higher boost causes a greater need for the block guard than the higher RPMs. Not 100% sure though

If you are removing the head or rebuilding a motor, it's a no brainer. I wouldn't go in just for that though.
I would also get a Rotax oil jet too if you are going in.

I think it's good insurance.

???? About ARP bolts?
Gus for 84 to 87 mph do I need the ARP bolts and if the are good ?because I live close to PPG that way I stop and get a set from them .

ARP studs, I have heard some people like them and some don't. I have a new set of arp studs that I have not installed and it is because I am unsure myself.

I don't run them and have been ok. I would recommend getting the heavy duty flywheel bolts though (from PPG) if pulling motor.

i've been running the studs for a while now with good results, i torqued them per nils instructions not the PPG ones that come with the kit
30/60/85 ft lbs use ARP assembly on the washers and nuts and nothing on the block side since the threads are sealed there.
i also updated to the 06+ spec flywheel bolts and 08+ SC oiler system
