Why? about the only 'advantage' of these is that they are less strong than the
stock bolts, and harder to get an accurate torque on (and lets ignore the
marketing, there are double the number of contact surfaces, therefore there
is more room for torquing errors).
Head studs are ONLY an advantage on alloy blocks, where stripping the threads
out of the block with repeated re-torquings can be an issue - hands up
everyone who has managed to strip a thread out of a supra case iron block??
