Asking About: Mustang ARP High Performance Series Hex Head Bolt Kit - 7/16" (79-95) 5.0


head bolts

Dumb question, recently bought these lovely ARP bolts for a 306 I'm putting together. Now I'm starting to double think, I have the intention of throwing on some GT40x heads. What the question is will these ARP's fit the GT40X head?

I am sorry I didn't clarify that better. Be sure and use the intake gasket M9439A50 or equivalent as well.

Yes these will fit those 302 heads.

Technically they will fit through the GT40X heads, but to properly install GT40X heads on a 302 block you must use step down washers. All GT40X heads use a 351W size bolt hole (1/2"), where a 302 uses a 7/16" head bolt. Christopher F. needs to use the head bolt kit with part number M6065D289, otherwise he will risk head movement and blown gaskets. - Brian 3 years ago
