Boy I wish I had budgeted for ARP head bolts and balancer bolt...if you are in the planning stages do yourself the favor and use them.

I have a feeling torque-to-yield has been a bad experience for him.....

I didn't suffer a failure, but recently when reinstalling heads on my GTO, I really hated myself for not going with ARP where I could measure torque, not an angle.

Right in the middle of use the torque angle gauge took a crap...so it was marking and eyeballing. Id just rather been able to just use torque instead....just is much easier and you can reuse them.

Sounds like your problem is with your tools.

I have never used nothing more than a breaker bar (after the initial torque)..... is it right or wrong? I duno but it works....
I am fairly certain you will have no issues, atleast from head or crank bolt torque......
