I can't seem to find either the OEM size for this motor, or an ARP kit for the motor.

I've got a head gasket leak, and I'd like to replace the studs, in case that's the weak point.

If I can't find them, I may just call Honda, and get theirs, as I need to do this this coming weekend.

They use the same head bolts as the D15-D16Z so I'd think they use the Z6 ARP's

Z6 ARP's are the correct set for the D17 engine. Note that the D17 did not use stretch head bolts and they an be re-used.

I have actually never replaced the head bolts on my own cars when doing heads. Tq 5 ft lbs over spec on the final tightening and ive never had an issue.

Just did the HG on my newly aquired winter beater with a D17 and did not replace the bolts. No leaks and passed a leak down test.
