Well I wish I still had the install directions, but it should be 240.

I beleive it was done in three steps, 80, 160, 240 following the factory head bolt install sequence.

If you don't get a reply with an absolute positive answer, you can call ARP and they should be able to help you out pretty easily.

ARP tech support in Ventura, CA has some really helpful engineers. I've called them twice on other cars and they were always good for an answer. Does Ford call for Loctite in the block like some aluminum blocks. Is there is a set height above the deck for the 6.0? On my P-car blocks sometimes they can turn when torqued throwing off the torque value if not set in Loctite.

I've used the ARP tech line numerous times for my various engine builds for race cars.

My BIG question; how are you busting head gaskets the 3rd time with the motor studded? Big boost, blocked egr cooler???

I have blown gaskets now and I really don't want to replace only to toast them again in a few thousand miles. I bought the diesel b/c drive them.

What's the point of having ARP studs if your still blowing head gaskets? I was under the impression that was the one stop fix all for the problem. I wonder if your heads are warped?

I've asked myself the same question.....how is it possible a third time with with ARPs and fire ringed heads? The 2nd time was with ARPs alone that were added the first time after stock. It IS NOT A COOLER ISSUE....trust me. AS for warped heads, these were fire ringed heads from Elite..... would think they were flat when installed. I had an injector problem for about 18 months (installed with the fire ringed heads) and HG's held but was very inefficient and very hot not making power correctly. Finally had to go back to stock injectors..... first long tow of 10Klbs up 6% grade making efficient power on stock programming I blew coolant. Now, if towing and I go above 20lbs boost it will blow. My hope at this point is the heads weren't torqued correctly. ARP says 265 is good with the fire ringed heads. Going to try that first one bolt at a time without removing heads and see. Ford won't touch it at this point because it is all aftermarket.......even though there first stock repair under warranty failed the first time I towed afterwards. Only other thing I can think of is that it is a bad block or just plain lemon motor with some undiagnosable reason it keeps doing it. 3 times just doesn't make sense.......with ARPs and Fire Ringed Heads and no cooler issues.

Very well could be an issue with the block. Did they test it for flatness when the heads were off?

You NEED to get the heads and block checked for flatness. If not, you might as well go out in the middle of the street and light off 500 $1 bills. The best head gaskets and studs can not cure flatness problems.
