    I try for .060"-.080"...

    I have no clue how you bent those ARP head bolts....I've used spare ones to lift engines out and never bent one.

    I honestly don't know either.

    I really did accidentally Jack the front of the car up with the engine Crane during the first install. .. I ruined a motor Mount in the process... Could have been that I guess.

    I could watch the head of the bolt kind of wobble as it turned in the hole though. The new ones didn't do that.
