Here's a set that looks pretty similar to those, but I'm sure they're as good as ARP 'cause they cost just as much! 30 kits have been sold so far!

You get the torque wrench, I'll get the popcorn.
I tested a $300 set of ARP knockoffs and they were garbage. Washers started squishing out from underneath the nut at 90 ft-lbs. With ARP washers, the studs yielded at 130 ft-lbs.
These ones you linked look even crustier than those ones I tested.

No. No. No.
You can even see how heinous the threads are on their stock photo. No.
Dont do it.
Unless someone feels like taking a huge gamble here. Which I doubt any of us would do. You included.

Could we trust a $70. head stud kit ?
I saw this 12 valve head stud kit on the big auction site in CA. A full set for $69.90 !!!? How can it be, and can they be trusted ?
