ARP Head Stud Kit – 82-00 GM 6.2L/6.5L Diesel. Its a proven fact that OEM head bolts are the weak link in a diesel engine; especially if the engine has been modified. Diesel engines are all assembled using oTorque To Yieldbolts and any increases in combustion pressure can lead to problems like blown head gaskets or catastrophic engine failure. ARP’s Diesel Head Stud Kits are designed for higher clamping loads and much safer and stronger than OEM. They are available in several different strength materials to safely handle applications from performance street to all-out competition. Thoroughbred Diesel began as a business that thrived in the diesel repair market, for local folks in Winchester Kentucky since 2001. In 2009 we built a new 11,000sq ft. Shop with a in house dyno, conveniently located along interstate I-64 in Winchester, KY. This is now the location we host our annual Dyno Day called Judgement Day. We are just rednecks that know trucks at Thoroughbred Diesel. Orders recieved by 3pm Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday are normally processed that day.
