ARP 12-Point Cylinder Head Stud Kit for all 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 Mustangs with a 3V 4.6L Engine.

It is for good reason that virtually every top professional engine builder relies on ARP Pro Series head studs for their all-out competition power plants. Simply stated, there’s not a better stud setup on the market today. ARP uses a premium grade 8740 alloy that is rated far superior to “aircraft” quality. You've come to the right place if you're looking to rebuild or upgrade the internals of your 4.6L 3V Engine.

*This cylinder head kit will also fit 3V 5.4L Engines that are commonly found in the 2004-2010 F-150, Lincoln Navigator, and Ford Expedition.

Features and Benefits:
- Uses A Premium Grade 8740 Alloy
- Heat Treated To 200,000 PSI
- Centerless Ground
- Thread Rolled After Heat Treat
- 1000% better fatigue strength 

Because ARP studs are manufactured to such exacting tolerances, you will note that gaskets and cylinder heads literally glide into position and are perfectly aligned, something that won’t happen with inferior quality head studs. Each stud is placed vertically in special racks and precisely heat treated to 200,000 PSI. Following heat treat, each stud is centerless ground to make it as close to perfectly concentric as possible. It’s important to note that lesser quality studs are not even centerless ground, the material is thread rolled in bar stock form.

ARP studs are thread rolled after heat treat, which gives them about 1000% better fatigue strength than those studs that are threaded prior to heat treat. It costs a lot more to do it this way, because it’s tough on tooling, but the results are well worth the extra effort. This procedure more equalizes the “stretch” of both studs, which makes for a more consistent clamping force and one that compensates for head gasket compression when the cylinder heads are installed. This helps prevent blown head gaskets, and assures optimum engine sealing.

Clearly, they are the best on the market today, and the favorite of leading professional engine builders in all forms of racing. Look for ARP stamped on each stud as your assurance of quality. You won’t find a better quality cylinder head stud on the market from any other source. Order the ARP 12-Point Cylinder Head Stud Kit for your 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, or 2010 Mustang with a 3V 4.6L Engine from CJ Pony Parts today!
