Re: Header Install(Stud or Not)
I studded both sides of mine, used grade 8.8 studs with permanent locktite . Works nice . Hint: on headers, use the stock steel manifold gasket with just a light coating of Permatex Copper Seal . This way, it isolates the header's steel away from the aluminum head, and the aluminized coating of the gasket takes care of the aluminum head issue. Good lock washers and nuts do the rest....not to mention it can be re-used at least 5 times that way.
