I have a 1.8L 16v and i have arp studs with 30 wt oil. i torqued them to 65 ft/lbs, and im finding oil in the coolant. im not sure where its coming from yet. i havent found coolant in the oil and there is no white steam from the exhaust. But im assuming its headgasket related. what should i torque these studs too? thanks!

this subject comes us numeous times, i torqued mine to 85ft/lbs, some other torque it to 65 plus a quarter turn and others torque it to 75. try torquing it either a 1/4 turn more or 10 more ft/lbs.

do you have the old school water cooled, oil cooler? sometimes those will corrode to the point of leaking...if it continue to leek after the 85lb toque that is...leo

you should add 10 more ft/lbs when torquing with 30w oil accoding to the arp manual. IIRC

So what is a good deal for a set of ARP head studs? The best price I've seen is around $100 for a set. Would I be getting ripped off at this price?

Ok, what's all this talk I hear about undercut vs. standard. I got the one's in my Rabbit from TT a few years ago, and now I need to order another set? What's the diff?

Well, I talked to Randy at TT about the ARP's this afternoon, and I also found some info on the ARP site. But the undercut studs are supposed to help on bi-metal engines. It has to do with expansion rates, and the studs holding a better stretch or something like that.
They're supposed to be better, but they are also backordered, so regular ARP's here I come.

Thanks. I would like to get a set of either but I ran out of money machining my head and buying pistons so I'll be using the stock bolts again.
I got a set of stock Mahle 1.8 8.5:1 .020 oversize pistons for $102 from Gex. Thats a pretty sweet deal I think. I'd like forged stuff, but can't afford it right now.
