that is what I was told, you take the rods with the ARP bolts to the machinist, and have him (or you I guess) install the rod bolts to the correct stretch, then re-machine the bearing surface to round.

Since ARP bolts can be re-used, this is not a problem, but they do put more force on the rod so it deforms and "can" cause a rod to seize on the crank.

If everything seems under control, your not going fast enough.
