Balanced rotating assembly

BALANCED ROTATING ASSEMBLY. We offer this option as an upgrade for those people who want a perfectly balanced engine. If you don’t understand the “balancing” and would like to learn why you might, or might not want it done, scroll to the bottom of this page and click on our blog “Balancing a Powerstroke diesel engine”.
Keep in mind that we own a $35,000 balancing machine and we make money balancing an engine but we will not lie to you to tell you that it is necessary. Most shops charge a lot more to do one but we keep the cost to a minimum for those people who want it done. If we were building a Nascar engine that runs at 9,800 RPM, we would tell you that it has to be done.

ARP CUSTOM AGE 625+ HEAD STUDS. All of our 6.0 Long Blocks come standard with ARP 250-4202 head studs.

The retail price to purchase is higher and can be found under “Products” on our web site.
All Custom Age 625+ studs are centerless ground, heat treated prior to thread rolling and machining, and are nominally rated at 270,000 psi. These fasteners deliver a 40% increase in tensile strength over the OEM Torque to Yield (TTY) head bolts.
