I’m not disparaging Nichols studs. I have never heard one bad word about them. I just want to point out there are other alternatives. I went with the ARP studs because they are not tapered like both the stock and Nichols studs are. I have read reports that some of the studs besides the Nichols are not a good fit in the case threads, That did not turn out to be an issue. ARP studs are also cheaper, if price is a consideration. I don’t understand why Nichols made their studs tapered to a smaller diameter, maybe there is a sound engineering reason, but I couldn’t think of one.
