I dont think you understood my question... I already have some on my car, I lost my instructions on how tight to torque them... not where to buy them man...
I have always done them @ 75 ft lbs with moly lube.
First round torque them to 50 or so.. Second round to 75 ft lbs.

i guess arp says 60 ft lbs max... He is also reusing them. And since the first round im sure they streched a lil bit. I dunno.

Well when it comes down to arp saying 60 ft lbs.. Thats on their torque wrench. And My Snap-on torque wrench is nice and gets calibrated every few years so it should be close. But i dont know of many people that are building an engine go out and buy a nice premium quality torque wrench. With that being said im sure everyones actually torqing them at a different rate.

also since it was unsaid and may not be clear the final torque is going to be to 60 ft-lbs
