Also does anyone know if the new ford head bolts any better then the original ones or should I go with the APR ones? The APR ones are very expensive!
I had the new ford ones done under warranty, they stretched in 2 weeks.
So unless you want to do this again, get the ARPs. Also make sure you send the heads to a machine shops, they are known to crack around the valve seats and be warped. This is a huge job, you don't want to do again.
