INDESTRUCTIBLE TENSILE STRENGTH
XOTIC 7200 material properties allow for far greater tensile strength compared to 8740 chromoly steel head studs. Threads are rolled after heat treatment for optimum fatigue strength. Premium quality inspection standards ensure you'll never get a blow head gasket again. Please see vehicle fitment tab below to ensure accurate fitment.
Broached stud ends install & make cylinder head removal easier. Engineered to unleash more performance out of your vehicle. Ample clamping strength prevents cylinder heads from lifting.
ULTRA CLAMPING FORCE
Head studs are designed to retain cylinder seal even with today's extreme high pressure turbo systems. These studs far exceed clamping forces provided by standard Duramax head bolts.

We do alot of stud work through my shop and Xotic Head Studs are extremely comparable to ARP. I have yet to find a discrepancy in them. Xotic head studs are outstanding at 1/3 if the cost.
I would definitely use these again or recommend them to other shops
I have them in both of my duramaxes, and I am happy with the product so far, we will see if they hold up.
Better than I thought there were going to be.
This is the second set of Exotic bolts I have used, just as good as the rest for my needs , one set has been running over a year no problems
