Careful using a mixmatch set. The studs will hold better than the bolts and you can pull threads from the block during heat cycles. Seen it happen on a y8 when dude lost a couple arp studs.

i think its ment to have the 2 middle ones as bolts.

Do i torque arp's down more then the stock 50ish with a graphite gasket?

the head could be warped or could something be causing you to detonate and blow your HG?
