Hello,

I've yet again come across quite a controversial topic. Using Used parts. USED GSR MAIN CAP ASSEMBLY $100

Well anyway, getting around to my question, I have heard that using any part of a car that has been put to stress (namingly used head bolts, rod bolts, and this block girdle) is not a good idea to reuse them. I was told this is due to the fact that they already established a "stretch" and putting them in a new appliacation might cause more stress and cause breakage of parts. Anyway, if anyone can clear up this misconception that would be GREAT. Thanks.

just don't use the used bolts, and you should be fine. it's a pretty good deal, considering you can get a block girdle on an LS for 100 bucks.

Well, you still need to line-bore the mains after installing them, so add the price of that. If you are buying new bolts, ARP sells a set. Get those and then line-bore.

Sometimes I wonder if it's really worth it to work on an LS block.
