Hello, I've got Mazworx SR20DET head studs in the mail and the instructions are saying I torque them to 45/65 ft.-lbs. This seemed low so I looked up ARP recommendations and their instructions say three equal steps to a final 100lbs. Since the numbers are so far off I'm really not sure what to do.
The Mazworx studs are made from a different material than the base ARP shelf stock studs and hence the correct torque will be different to what ARP recommend. I'd go with Mazworx's recommendations, however if you have any doubts I'd recommend contacting them directly and discussing it with them. They've been incredibly helpful any time I've had questions.
I emailed them just to make sure its 65lbs, thanks.
