ARP 2000 rod bolt upgrade

Post  mikey hefner on December 22nd 2013, 12:23 am

Hi everyone, just picked up a set of Scat H Beams from one of the members here. How difficult is it to add the ARP2000 bolt upgrade to them? I'm still learning so please don't think I'm ignorant for asking what may be a simple question. Any info is appreciated! !!

There's not a dumb question when trying to learn.Lem can fix you up with your 2000 bolts.

What needs to be done to the rods to install the bolts if anything?

Check the big end for size after the new bolts are installed...should be okay.

So they will thread in no problem, check for out of round after, and resize if needed? Am I correct in my thinking from what you guys have shared.

The 8740 and 2000 bolt threads are the same.

Why will it distort the cap when installed?

It is wise to measure to find out if the bore distorts.....that's the only way to know for sure.

What is the strength difference between the bolts that come with the Scat/Eagle type H-beam rods & the ARP 2000 bolt? Are we talking about a small increase in bolt lifespan/loading/safety, or a huge difference?

From what I understand the ARP 2000 Bolts take the power handling to four digit power range. I'm definitely upgrading!!
