    Stock gasket/cometic and stock bolts/ARP

    Wan to know a few opinions on what combination to choose for a sc gtx, Cometic gasket or OEM gasket and stock bolts or the ARP bolts. I dont plan on removing the cylinder head anytime soon but the stock bolts never seem to feel right torquing down anyways even though I bought brand new for one ski. Thanks

    Well thats enough input for me honestly, considering your skis run and mine don't! O and I have OEM bolts that were torqued down and used for 5 minutes before another engine problem developed which required the head to come off, do I need to buy new ones for it? (another ski, I have two)

    Lemon you can measure them quite honestly I don't make it a practice to reuse any stretch to yield bolts specially head bolts. It's a judgement call on the five minutes I'm a stickler that's the beauty of arp you can retourqe them . I don't think it would be terrible to reuse the five me bolts being as they did not get a full heat cycle on them of course replace the head gasket
