Automotive Racing Products (ARP) will undoubtedly be at the top of most performance enthusiasts’ lists when it comes to performance bolts and fasteners. After all, they have been in the bolt business for over 50 years. And while most of us think about rod bolts, main bolts/studs, and head bolts/studs, the company also has other external fastener offerings when it comes to the LS engine.
External fasteners are often overlooked when modifying or building an LS engine because you can reuse the factory hardware. After all, you can reuse the LS bolts. However, the bolts can be dirty and grimy from years of use and neglect. And if your building a new engine, the last thing you want to do is install disgusting hardware.
So what are your options?
ARP has you covered if your looking for high-quality hardware for an LS engine build. These kits include everything you need, from the oil pan to the intake manifold. And they come in a few different options as well. For example, you can choose from standard hex or 12-point bolt heads in either stainless steel or black oxide finish.
APR’s engine and accessory bolt kit for the LS include fasteners for the intake manifold, valve covers, water pump, water neck, valley cover, front cover, rear cover, and oil pan.
