Check ARPs website. Cross reference your engine with a kit.


Then when u have the kit # do a search for the best price.

Am I the only one who knows how to find parts and deals on the internet?

9 of the studs are the exact same ones as b16. 1 is slightly longer by 9mm.

The arp kit I listed is the correct one for the DOHC ZC/D16A1.

There are also other cars you can use studs from such as the VW stud or the SRT4/PT cruiser studs.

More info here

Christ! 35 bucks for shipping!?

Where do you live? USPS is about 12 bucks.
I needed them over night and first thing in the morning to complete a build, bad planning on my part.

But, they are all equal length and they allowed one thread past the head of the nut with the washer. So, I debunk the myth that you need 9 of the standard length and one longer stud.

I saw your words pop up on a thread somewhere else concerning this. You should post pics showing the debunk, just sayin'. Since the other thread from '10 shows the opposite. Or did I miss something?

So the extended stud in the pic is a standard stud? That is what I am missing, sorry I am dense.

LOL, yes it is...the center stud threads into the block where the purchase is much higher in the block than the rest. You can see how even all of the other studs are at the same height as their thread purchase is identical in height, albeit lower.

Too be honest, I was skeptical when I got them and I called GO immediately when I got them and they said - "try it"...worked out perfectly.
