      Depends on the grease you plan on lubing the bolts with. Go to arp's website and look up the chart.
      Also rememeber to torque the bolts in the correct steps. Believe its 25-35-55.....but I'm not sure. Last time I did this was in the summer.

      rick, those rod bolts self-torque at about 8700 rpm according to my calculations haha, so just toss 'em in hand tight and I'll take care of the rest. haha j/k

      dude you passes the spray on stock rods and 020 tranny test.... I'd call that the Rick Benner test. I would say that the dear sweet baby infant jesus has blessed your race car.

      repeatedly torquing the bolts burnishes the thread and the mating surfaces, which gives a more predictable stretch on the bolt the final time. This is the procedure recommended by ARP when using a torque wrench.
