    Can this be installed with the engine still in tact or does the engine need to be torn down and ARP rod bolts installed?

    naw, just drop the oil pan, windage tray, and there you are. remove the ( and the two bolts. put the arp bolts on the ( cap and tighten to spec.

    Hmm... I dont know... that's more than likely the reason I asked... I searched this site and HT to no avail, so fuck it. Ill just wait to replace em when I build for Boost.

    So basically whoever told me I could basically change em out, was an idiot and doesnt know anything? And, essentially I have to removce the engine, disassemble at least the head, and rods. Thus ending up replacing the bolts, headgasket, etc...
