anyone ever see bolt corrosion?

"The L19 bolt is highly susceptible to stress corrosion. You could handle one for days, and set it on a table and it would probably be fine. Install it in an engine, load it with torque, and it will start to corrode.
If you should handle one, you can simply wipe it real good with iso propyl alcohol or acetone, and oil it real well.

Not that it is a bad bolt, but I am not a fan of the bolt in none race situations. If you neglect the oil and allow acid or moisture to collect in the oil it can attack the bolt.
The ARP 2000 is virtually totally ammune to corrosion and is almost as strong as the L19 and has better fatique life. Its why the 2000 bolt is the most common bolt up grade in after market rods. The 2000 bolt is stronger than most rods it is installed in. You will more than likely fail the rod before you fail a ARP 2000 bolt "


i like the 2000, and was told it was really the better choice, 99% of the time..opinions?

My new heads up LSX has arp 2000's. I was told that my rods would break before the rod bolts would fail.

I'm running Arp 2000's also. Pretty beefy bolt. I've only spun it to 7k so far but will be spinning it to 8k soon.
