      this stuff looks legit
      good **** Issam, i cant wait to see what this stuff will do for a 24v head
      What else do you suggest with this? Cams?
      Im sure you can provide cams with this setup and have the ultimate 24v head huh?

      Meik used the Raceware studs on his first build and so did Jacob.

      I used ARP both times.

      They both said to not screw them down into the head all the way.

      100% true. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] I screwed mine in all the way - then back 3 times or so. Basically just enough to make the bolts flush w/the top of the nuts.

      some of the spacers are 8.5mm thick, specifically the hgp one that lowers compression to 7.5:1

      why the hell would you EVER want your CR that low???

      Can any1 chime on using this valve springs set. In the past Ive used full schrick 12v valve train, been a little spoiled. Pricing is not that bad considering I paid around 1K for a full schrick valve train.

      Just wanted to give everyone an actual opinion on these studs. The Racewares are too short with a standard head spacer, meaning you have to back them out in order to get the nut on fully. After a Raceware stripped on the initial 20 ft-lbs torquing procedure, I called Issam to get a set of ARP's.
      The ARP's are longer than the Racewares, and have more than enough length to accomodate a spacer with the stud bottomed out in the block. Also, the ARP's have a hex key in the top, so that if you had to adjust the length, you could do so without having to remove the head. ARP's also include their moly lube, unlike the Racewares which suggest using motor oil. Personally, I would never think about using the Racewares again now that there is an ARP option availible.
      Thanks Issam! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Fully agree installed a set of raceware on a 24v deffinitely too short. plus they don't have the key or anything to keep them in place when you do back them up so you can screw the nut down. I am glad you are selling these Issam I recommend arp to everyone. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      How much for the titanium retainer sets? (I am assuming that's without springs?) Hrmm, springs would be good too...

      So do you have both size ARP's for the 2.8 and 3.2 24v's iirc 12mm VS 11mm bolts? Because I need a set for my R motor, and was starting to feel as though raceware was my only option. thanks [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      oh how I'd love to rev to 8300
