i'm in the process of putting a motor together and i forgot to get the dowel pins for the head/block.....if need them i'll wait for them but i would hate to stop and wait if they aren't really necessary.

oh yeah i have arp studs to line everything up so thats no prob...

thanks

If you just use the head studs/bolts to line it up, you could be half a millimeter off (or less) and not know it- then when you start it up and try to rev, it's all over.

that kit will get the block and head together and run all of your oil lines. Good kit, have on myself(with the exception of the plastic collars on the oil feed line). If you bought the whole kit then you are good to go.

oh yeah...I highly recommend head studs ARP,AEBS(look into AEBS...much larger diameter than ARP)

DOWEL PINS ARE 100% NECESSARY!!! Haha learn from my mistake, one weekend me and my friends were put a type R head on my b16 and we finshed her all off, torqued her to spec and started her up, not too long after she started blowing white smoke (head gasket) and wondering how the hell we could have mesed up (since we have sucessfully torqued heads many times before) we looked up on the counter and what did we see? DOWEL PINS that we left out
