Buyer beware: Not all head studs are created equal. After years of dealing with intermittent supply and occasional quality issues with aftermarket head studs, we set out to make our own. No, we did not just copy the “competition.” We found some new old stock (NOS), still-in-the-box genuine VW head studs and sent them to our local University, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo to have them properly tested. They were snapped, ground on, hardness tested, and otherwise abused. We found out exactly what the original VW studs were made of, how hard they were, how strong they were and exactly what all the sizes and details were. Then we teamed up with a premiere manufacturer that could execute them to perfection. They come individually packaged to keep them from getting dinged up or corroded—either of which can cause them to fail prematurely.

Introducing the GoWesty cylinder head studs, the best thing since sliced bread (or at least since the VW studs went NLA)!
