Default Help arp install with out removing head ?

Okay Okay I already know.... Please be nice lol ☺
So I recently got my civic dyno tuned made 195 hp !! Check out the vid if you like!
Serious question under the video tho!



But the real question is my head is lifting soo my tuner said I can get away with install one arp stud at a time but I would really prefer to remove the whole head i'm just nervous it might affect my tune ?
Should I be fine or should i just install one by one in the correct sequence order ?

If your head lifted, doesn't that mean the head is now warped?

Removing the head and installing ARP head studs will not change the tune. You should check the head for straightness and of course replace the head gasket.

It's really not recommended. The head needs to be pulled, checked and head gasket replaced. The block threads need to be completely cleaned with a thread chaser so that the studs will sit level and you get proper, consistent torque readings. Don't forget the ARP moly lube either.


Can you do it the way you're asking and get lucky? Try it and find out. If it doesn't work you're gonna be pulling the head to do it the right way.
