    I need longer bolts for these new valve covers.

    Any recommendations?

    Home depot seems to have the best price. They are like 4 cents a bolt there.

    I bought a little stud kit for FSB engines. 1/4 20 is the thread size. I was going to go to HDR aka Home Depot Racing and just buy the bolts but figured I'll wait for the other parts to come in :)

    I have an ARP valve cover stud set around here somewhere. It was on the car for awhile, but it was more of a pain then using the home depot bolts, so I went back to the HDR setup. With the studs you had to take the alternator off to remove the valve cover which was just a pain.

    My alternator has been moved due to the supercharger, but the SC might be in the way. Id have to take the studs out as well as the nuts that go on top. That's worst case scenario.
