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.

Someone needs to report them to arp they even used the same part number!!!! In all reality if someone was to be a test subject would be interested to see how well they work. My money is on they are garbage though.

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.

Like this?



These washers came with the SHCS head bolts I used in my engine.
Washers started crushing around 100 ft-lbs
I stopped at 120 ft-lbs after installing ARP washers

I guess the guys who put that kit together have never heard of hardened SAE washers?
