I am new to this forum. I own a '91 Cressida 7MGE with 133,000 miles, in excellent condition except I need to replace my head gasket and bolts.
I have been searching the internet for these bolts, and I can only fine bolts for the Supra, even though they have the same engine except for Supra's turbo. I can't even find the bolts with ARP, are they the same bolts?
there's absolutely nothing wrong with the toyota bolts. if you have a MHG or are running boost, yes I'd suggest ARPs but for a stock engine toyota bolts won't be a problem by very far. a stock engine will not last 1 minute longer by using ARP bolts/studs. Make sure you check the head and block for straightness, if not get them both decked just for good measure and torque the toyota bolts to 75 ftlbs instead of 58. if you get ARP bolts, you'll torque them higher, studs even higher than that. and make sure you do it in at least 3 passes (25 ftlb, 50 ftlb, 75 ftlb) and in the right order.
