yeah, im about to put on a new head gasket on an d15b7.
are the old assed oem headbolts reusable? i know that it isnt reccomended, but its a super low budget build and i really dont want to invest another 130 bucks for some arp head studs, lol
unless somebody knows where i can get some head bolts for cheap????

and what it the tourque lbs on tourquing them down to the block?
isnt it supposed to be tourqued down twice???

a general rule of thumb is that head bolts can be re torqued/ reused once, then need to be replaced. in other words, if this is the first time the head has been off, you should be fine.

get arp's and never have to buy them again.

I dunno how many times you can reuse the arp head studs, but I've reused them like 2-4 times already.

i paid 9.98 for each bolt from honda. and they were strech bolts that could only be used once. and i droped a nut into the head and had to pull it off and throw those new bolts away. and after some research found that the old ones can be reused. i wanted to hit myself in the face. oh and i've used mine like 5 times. but they need to go away now cuz i think it blew a hg and that prolly was the reason why.

oh and arp ftw.

$83 for a set of headbolts from Honda
last time i bought a set of oem's they were $90. thats about the same price as ARP's. plus imo i wouldn't reuse oem headbolts unless you don't plan on doing anything other than just plain driving.
