So you know that if you plan on doing the head gasket repair yourself, you'll have to fix the stripped head bolt holes in the block. Forget about helicoils or threaded inserts. There are all kinds of kits on
the market. But nothing even remotely comes close to the SureGrip Stud Kit designed and developed by Northstar Performance.
These one piece CNC machined and heat treated studs completely eliminate the need for any type of threaded insert- the repair is the stud itself. There is a full 2 inches of thread gripping in the block- the most of
any Northstar repair kit- and best of all it's a one piece repair.
The problem with threaded inserts is this: threads by nature are angled in a way that when you go to torque the head bolts down, it expands the insert in diameter. Sometimes when the insert expands in the block, the block cracks, or the insert expands enough to let the fine-thread M11 bolt slip over inside the insert. This is completely
eliminated with the SureGrip Studs. Also when you go with these studs, the torquing is now done from on top with a nut (steel on steel) rather than twisting a bolt under load into the aluminum.
You drill the holes in the block, tap them, and then install these studs. Then install the gasket, head, and secure with the special washers and nuts included in the kit. It's that simple. Stronger than stock and more durable.
Our kit may not be the cheapest fix on the market- but it's the best. Nobody wants to do this job twice on the same car. We are the only company to offer a repair for the Northstar that stands behind it so well, that if your head gaskets fail within one year, send us the studs back as well as the rest of the kit and we will refund your money. Nobody else trusts their repair method enough to do this. Give your car all the wide-open-throttle you want after installing our studs and new gaskets- you won't blow the gaskets again!
These studs have been tested and proven on over 3200 engines to date with 0 thread or stud failures. General Motors and Cadillac technicians who have used our studs swear they would never use anything else again!
