Suregrip Head Stud Kit for Northstar V8. This Kit includes install tooling. This is the kit that you want if you are planning to successfully repair head gasket issues on a Northstar. This kit beats out ALL others on the market, hands down. Forget threaded inserts, unless you like doing things twice. We like fixing things once, and for good! This kit will achieve that.

Kit contents:
• 20 Suregrip Cylinder Head Studs
• 20 High strength nuts
• 20 Through Hardened Washers
• 1 Drill bit with a pre-set stop
• 1 Threading tap with depth mark
• 1 bottle of threadlocker (50mL)
• 1 X-Plate® Self aligning Drill/Tap Fixture
• 4 Fixture bolts to secure fixture to engine block
• Instruction page

This kit will repair one engine, both left and right banks. The tooling can be used on future Northstar builds.
U.S. Patent 8,740,532. Designed and developed by Jake Wiebe (a Northstar owner) and manufactured in Canada from USA sourced steel and components. Studs are roll threaded after heat treatment.

We also sell complete gasket kits, so check out our other items! And unlike most other gasket kits, our kits are COMPLETE. For instance, our head sets include the timing cover gasket, front crank seal, and catalytic converter gasket. The other guys leave all that out. Make VERY sure you use good quality gaskets such as Fel-Pro, or even better: Cometic MLS. If you have a bit of money to spare, go with Cometic- you won't regret it.

Fits the following cars with the Northstar 4.0/4.6/4.4 engines (be sure to select your correct year when ordering)

***Disclaimer***: These Suregrip Head Stud Sets are dual diameter (oversized). Your block will need to be drilled and tapped to accept these head studs. No need for any sort of threaded insert or heli-coil with our studs. These are very straightforward to use and install.

Final torque specs are included in the package, but are as follows: 30, 60, 75 ft lbs on the nuts only- dry with no oil. Do not exceed this torque.

The only real repair method

My first experience with the Northstar stud kit was several years ago when I had head gasket failure on my 2002 Deville DTS.
The repair was done by a regional mechanic and completely resolved the issue.

My most recent experience was with my 2011 DTS. I had the stud kit installed while the engine was apart during a bottom end reseal.

Installing the stud kit as a repair or simply preemptively will ensure you the ability to enjoy your Northsta,r trouble free, for years to come.

Worth Every Cent & The Effort

I have a 1997 Cadillac Deville Base Model. Contrary to what people say these are good engines, with the exception for this unfortunate design flaw which NSP mastered the legit fix for (the “head gasket issues” which people mistake, when really it’s the head bolt design + lack of maintenance ex. Changing coolant and oil regularly)(not to say that head gaskets don’t fail). My engine was very tired at 167k Mi after the prior owner abused the car, and I drive it spirited. My engine had coolant system issues intermittently, but mainly leaked oil from everywhere. I heard about NSP through my friend Steve who researched and learned these cars religiously after owning 4 Devilles. I ended up doing the “Bulletproof Kit” which includes these studs, I had a spare engine which I rebuilt and then swapped in place of my original engine. The parts you’re buying are very well made, high quality and a very easy kit to use. Engine removal is best from the top rather than dropping the cradle in my opinion. I’m very confident my car will last a very long time now with this kit installed, as many others who’ve installed it have also achieved higher miles and less headaches down the road. I highly recommend NSP & the SureGrip Kit! Especially if you have a very nice and clean 4.6L Northstar Powered Vehicle you want to keep around for a long time. -Certified Auto Technician Michael L. aka “Mechanical Mike”

Solved the problem

Years ago my 1997 Eldorado blew a head gasket and the bolt hole threads were stripped. I used this kit and have not had any issues since. 12 years so far, trouble free driving. Thank you Northstar Performance!
