ARP Head Bolts

Just purchased a set of ARP head bolts for about $442.00, is this about the going price for these suckers? There is some machining to be done as well, correct?

That price is about right. For a proper install the rocker pedestals need to get machined to allow room for the hardened washer and nut.

Ok, will do that when I get my new rocker arm stands. These diesels aren't for the faint of heart as far as the pocket book goes, that's for sure.

Since I have this torn down, might as well do some upgrades. i have a question about injectors (like this hasn't been covered right?). Didnt find quite the answer I was looking for though. Since my engine was originally non-inter-cooled, but I have an intercooler now, is there a difference in the injectors besides being 9mm for 1st gen, or 7mm on the 2nd gens? Can I run 7mm injectors with sleeve on mine, or would it just be better to get a 2nd gen 12 valve head with 7mm injector ports? Any other input would be great also if there's a different way to go. Thanks!

It sounds like you are looking to make more than stock power... Non-ic heads are prone to cracking because of the bigger bore. I *think* the sleeve option is for better selection of nozzles, not necessarily less chance of cracking. Pop pressure is different regardless be between VE an P7100.

Just so you know, the 9MM/7MM thing is from NI to Intercooled, not first gen to second. So anything later than 91.5 will be good to go.
