Heavy duty cylinder studs are necessary to prevent head gasket leakage in high-compression and turbocharged engines. Stock studs are made from poor material that will stretch and allow gasket leakage.
APE studs are made from heat treated chrome moly, centerless ground, and have rolled threads after heat treat for maximum strength.
APE originated heavy duty studs for performance motorcycles and today is recognized as the industry’s leading manufacturer. We supply studs to all of the top engine builders

Studs are the preferred fastener choice for high performance engines. Unlike a bolt, a stud uses all of the threads in the case, and it doesn't have to be removed during disassembly which adds wear on the case threads. Studs don't twist like bolts when being torqued down, so torque readings are more accurate.
