    What do you guys think are better ARP head studs or Golden Eagle, cause I just priced them and there the same price, so now all I have to know is what performs better, and can reused more and still stay strong.

    chances are, the GE's are jsut re-badged arp's

    that said, NO head stud SHOULD be re-used.
    they are torque stretched bolts.

    Well I have the ARP's and they are great but I haven't used the Golden Eagles so I may be biased by saying this. Go with the ARP's alot of people use them for a reason.

    Headstuds CAN be reused, and it is acceptable to reuse them. Head BOLTS should not be reused.

    That goes for STOCK headstuds. You can reuse GE or ARP headstuds all you want...they are NOT torque-stretched bolts.
