    Group Buy: ARP Head Bolts

    I'm going to be buying some ARP head bolts to go into my engine.

    See here for what and why!

    https://www.clubvr4.com/forum/showth...-and-headbolts

    They come in boxes of 10, and we need 16 per engine.

    So, buying 5 sets, we get 3 engines (plus 2 spare).
    Buying 8 sets, we get 5 engines.

    I'll try to get a discount, but without discount, it's looking like it'll be about ~£250 per set of 16.


    Here's the catch, they're out of stock, and seem to be everywhere But, I've put my name on the waiting list, and will be contacted when they're available again.

    I've secured 2 others already, can we get 2 more?

    @Confused The ARP bolts are a straight swap aren't they, and can be done one at a time? Future-proofing seems like a good idea to me...

    Well, I'm wondering about doing it at a future garage day (or before!), so might save doing my rocker cover gaskets until then.

    @Confused I suppose I should have added the subtext of put me down for a set. I'm in no rush!

    I suddenly got a message yesterday from the supplier, he had some in stock - so I bought them and they arrived with me today!

    Unfortunately a little more expensive than first thought, they came in at £290 per 16.

    So, priority for purchasing them at this price goes to the following people, in order:

    @Wouter
    Ben from the FTO group
    @elnevio

    I might have had other interest I've forgotten about from the WhatsApp groups I'm in, and I might even get hold of another batch anyway so I've got some more available in the future...
