The general rule is to replace them since they can stretch and tend to not torque down as well. Having said that, I know many people who have reused them, even a couple times, and not had problems, at least short term.
ARP head stud FTW. They are reusable too.
^^^^ I use them in all my motors.
I call them "insurance". :D
Do you have to have them-no,but they are nice.

Is that what the company says or just what people think. It will save me a few bucks if I can use them on my b20 from my b16.
ARP's are reusable.
Been there done that.
ARP FTW sir...
