Hi everybody, i just bought a set of ARP Studs for my skyline R33 GTR 1996, but am a little confused as to how i torque them up? i have been hearing many different things but is there a certain way or setting for them?
i am planning to run around 600hp.

Any info would be greatly appreiciated.

Thanks

Michael

I got ARP studs and was told NOT to use manufactures torque setting. Recomended was 80 ft lb when using ARP moly lube or 120ft lb with 30wt oil.

yep 80 ftlbs with the moly lube as gtrdan said not the standard torque.
go up in progressive increments ie 20,40,60,80

used Tomie studs for the head and they said std torque was fine.

I wouldn't use less than standard torque with a stud.

The head studs are 12 mm. The ARP kit is the 190,000 psi studs. The ARP catalog says 86 ft/lbs with lube. 109 ft/lbs with 30 wt oil.

Stock torque is 76-83 ft/lbs.

If you are around there, then you are within tolerances of your torque wrench.
