    Thread: ARP Rod Bolts

    1. 03-31-2012 06:46 PM #1
      I have arp rod bolts for the motor i am freshening up to turbo and was curious if i could just drop the oil pan and replace the rod bolts that way? would taking 1 stock rod bolt out, replacing with an ARP rod bolt, removing the other stock bolt and replacing with another ARP rod bolt be sufficient? Or would this ruin the rod bearings?

      thanks for any advice

      The rods need to be resized because the ARP bolts will change the shape of the larger end slightly. Basically the ARP bolts are installed and torqued and then the rods are machined so that they're round again. Rods need to come out.
