So I've been waiting for my engine to be built and the only thing holding it up getting it finished is the ARP main studs. They've been on back order for months now. The date of arrival has been pushed back about three times now. I understand the shortage of raw materials is the issue. This is an hhp forged bottom end. Are there any other companies that make main studs for our cars. Would you just throw in the stock main bolts just to get this thing finished. I'm more than patient to keep waiting but I just want to hear your guys's opinions. My plan is to throw a Whipple 3.0 on it but those are also on backorder. I just want to get this car done it's been down for 6 months because of part availability.
