i have seen those colored engine bolt kits and noticed that you can get them in titanium for close to $300 and aluminum for under $100... i get that titanium is strong but is it really worth it?
Personally i always fill up a big bag of various metric stainless anytime i'm there M6 is usually the standard for engine covers. Cheap as chips too.
Heard that a few times. Never experienced it, so far it seems to me like a word of mouth scare story. Either way, it's better than oem bolts by a long way for self-welding. Also, use copper-slip or regret your life.Just be careful with the stainless bolts as they create a reaction with aluminum parts and will corrode and eventually bind. You have to make sure that the stainless is coated.
