    K this is my problem, I only have 8 brandnew ARP headbolts, the other 2 magically dissappeared. Could i use the 8 new ARP's and 2 new stock ones. Or you cant mix and match them. Or does any1 know of someone or somewhere that will sell me 2 ARP headbolts.. I emailed ARP but I dont think that they will sell them seperately. -paul

    You don't want to mix and match ARP studs/bolts with OEM studs/bolts - the clamping pressure from the ARP studs/bolts is higher. Mixing and matching would give you uneven clamping pressures across the head gasket.

    definitely don't mix/match.

    like previously stated, the bolts will stretch differently and cause uneven pressure on the headgasket...which will in turn cause damage and eventually blow the headgasket.

    You can go to arp's website and get a contact #.
    talk to sales dept directly and they can sell you whatever you want.
    They are out of california.

    Don't mix and match.
