It was not out-of-date until 7 months ago and ARP have been selling the studs for decades. So if someone buys a kit that was manufactured more than 7 months ago, it will have the old torque figures in the kit.

ARP originally made studs that did not go far enough into the block and they were ripping out. Due to consumer complaints, they increased the length of them, but increased the torque to 100ft/lb. So after decades of consumer complaints it appears that they finally came to their senses in December last year.

The studs are good, the tech advice from the manufacturer, not so good.
