Just in case anyone stumbles in here, wondering:

ARP 201-5000

It's a BMW Main Stud Kit, I've also heard tales that a Ford V8 kit works too.

Ol guys not to resurrect a dead topic but I am looking for arp studs in general but mainly the head studs so I can get this thing running again. I looked at that eBay listing but it's already ended.
Yea I heard a couple bmw head stud swap stories but I hear it requires machining...so does anyone know where to find some headstuds? I already looked it up on Google, ebay and redline gti and sides hearing a couple people say someone here sells them what should I do lol

I used the bmw m50 head studs on my first build, i used the oe washers, iv had no problems, just make sure to tighten them a few times to strech them then up to your desired tourqe setting

Ok cool! So just use the bmw washers? I'm assuming the m50s are all the same then?

No the original g13 washers
I think its a bit ironic that both the head and main arp studs that fit are from a bmw engine, i wouldnt mind finding out which ford studs fit the main caps
But at the end of the day unless your building a high comp/revs or turbo engine the oe g13 bolts are fine
