ARP Head Studs, 03-05 Neon SRT-4 / 01-10 PT Cruiser
Model Number: 221261
When doing an engine rebuild, or if you are replacing the head gasket you'll need new head bolts. You can either get OEM head bolts that can only be used once, or you can use ARP head studs, which can be reused multiple times, and have higher strength than OEM bolts. Sounds like ARP head studs are the ones to go with, right?
Furthermore, the OEM bolts because you are turning a whole bolt into the block versus the stud system just turning a nut on the stud, you get better torque accuracy to make sure to have the best seal possible.
These bolts are made from 8740 alloy- which is a nickel chrome moly steel , and have a 200,000 psi tensile strength.
