    Default SS Header Bolts

    Folks,
    I put in stainless bolts on my header flanges on my 78 Vette. The old steel ones were shot.
    I have heard differing stories about the bolts reacting with the header flange or the block.
    Can you confirm any of this and whether the bolts would do better if coated with anti-seize before install?

    I've used ARP stainless steel header bolts for over 15 years and never a problem.
    Of course, always use anti-seize compound on all exhaust system bolts.
    May God's grace bless you in the Lord Jesus Christ.
