I bought a set of resized small block chevy rods with New ARP bolts in them.

What is the best way to torque these?
& how much pressure?

I don't have a streach gauge...
do I need to retorque them 2 or 3 times without the streach gauge?

I do have the ARP Lube.

Every ARP bolt is going to be different. are these the through botls on stock type rods, or capscrews type? If capscrews, those bolts are the single most important thing you can do correctly !!! period, end of story!either way, do them correctly, the 50 bucks you spend today, will be gained 10 fold in non failures as a result of improper bolt stretch/torque.

yes through bolts on stock rods.

Not a cap screw type.
