Default What should i do about headstuds!!

Alright well with my new built engine im kinda stuck on what i should do for head studs. I know i need some but they dont sell them for 86-89 accords lmao... What route should i take?? Should i just tighten the stock headbolts down alittle more then spec or what the hell should i do I know there has to be another engine or something that has the same dimensions for headstuds as mine but i dont know.

fFigure out the exact dimesions of the stock Accord ones and email/phone tech at ARP and see if something will cross over.You will need to know the diameter,thread pitch and length.I imagine somehting will crossover.

PM accordepicenter he's got a 88 accord Lx-i that he put's about 14psi into his A20 motor and probably make's good into the 2xx hp and torque. Ask him what he would reccomend.
