BRAND NEW IN BOX This listing includes. Muli-Layered Steel Black Diamond coating 20mm Head Gaskets 54579A (2 Gaskets, for left and right side). Mahle Advanced Black Diamond coating Head Gaskets. Constructed of (5) five stainless steel layers. Utilizing patented integrated push rod locators.
Coated with a Victor Reinz proprietary fluoroelastomer (rubber) coating. The coating seals and impregnates into the mating component surface where it decreases friction forces and allows controlled sliding of the mating components relative to the gasket without fretting or damage to aluminum engine components. The Black Diamond coating is soft enough for cold sealing and features maximum adhesion, increased durability and temperature resistance and is also resistant to engine fluids including gas, oil and coolant. It is for good reason that virtually every top professional engine builder relies on ARP Pro Series head studs for their all-out competition powerplants. Simply stated, there's not a better stud setup on the market today.
For openers, ARP uses a premium grade 8740 alloy that is rated far superior to "aircraft" quality. Each stud is placed vertically in special racks and precisely heat-treated to 200,000 psi.This procedure ensures complete heat penetration and the results are far superior to those lesser quality studs from other manufacturers who just dump pieces in a basket and hope for the best. Following heat-treat, each stud is centerless ground to make it as close to perfectly concentric as possible. This procedure involves about ten very slight cuts and results in an exceptionally straight part. It's important to note that lesser quality studs are not even centerless ground - the material is thread rolled in bar stock form (mostly before heat-treat, when the material is easier to machine).
Because ARP studs are manufactured to such exacting tolerances, you will note that gaskets and cylinder heads literally glide into position and are perfectly aligned - something that won't happen with inferior quality head studs. ARP studs are thread rolled after heat-treat, which gives them about 1000% (that's ten times) better fatigue strength than those studs that are threaded prior to heat-treat (a very common industry practice). It costs a lot more to do it this way, because it's tough on tooling, but the results are well worth the extra effort. 18 mm Alignment Dowels - Manufactured 2003 - Jan 11, 2006. 20 mm Alignment Dowels - Manufactured January 12, 2006 and newer.Please contact prior to ask about thickness options.
