So i just started tearing into my d16z6 today... and made a great find :biggrin: it already has ARP head studs and i only paid $140 for the engine... so that was good news

so i looked around thinking if there are ARP studs then someone must have done something else to it... the only other thing that i noticed was the valve springs were marked with pink paint stuff? any chance they could be aftermarket? if so what brand do you think they are thanks

I think the stock springs came with painted coils...like orange or maybe the pink you speak of. But nice job on the "free" ARPs!

my bet is that the springs you have are oem.

if you're interested in getting way stronger springs/retainers kms are the way to go.

they're excellent and affordable.

check them out at fjdistributors.com

Would they work well with a Zex 105300 cam?
