You have to buy or rent a plate so you drill the holes square. Its a lot more work and expense as a result.

I think you might be thinking about something else, he's talking about the stud alignment plate for drilling the M54 block. It's not cheap....and no shop would buy it unless they were "paid" to buy it, making it expensive for the customer.

I can count on 1.5 hands the number people I know that have drilled and timecert/helicoiled a block. In most cases, they ended up going to a new block anyway because it didn't work.

When you say it doesn't work, What actually happens. Does it strip out and lift anyway or does it have a set amount of pressure it can only handle. etc... Lets talk about that.

Name 2 shops that have this. NickG has one, almost every other shop that does something like this puts the block in a mill with electronics and has to drill tap each stud individually. The machine work would cost as much as a new block.

This may be funny to you but, this is what is in my motor and the shop that did my build has one, Shop around the corner from my house has one. It may be because these guys build high power motors I have no idea or it could be a thing for domestic cars since most of them build domestic motors. I'm still not clear on why not use them and if shops like Raceware is recommending them I would take their word over a guy whos done a few builds.

They may have the means to do it, and do it fine, but the plate we are speaking of bolts to the block, and has 14 holes for each stud location. The holes are the size of the drill bit and you drill each location. Its so a DIYer can do it.

The only reason why I'd go with ARP is engine RPM. If you aren't planning to rev the engine, you won't have an issue.

The power an engine makes has no affect on the rod bolts....

Yeah I'm excited. The pistons and the the rest of the new parts should come in the same time I get the bike.
