newly built 3.0 (original P/C and no value guides), checked the head studs before the build and they all looked ok,

Common knowledge yes, but easily missed or dismissed, so I thought I would post a good reason for anyone who might consider not checking them, me.

I had my 3.2 top end done and never had them checked, so I guess now after a good 80K miles I should do that.

The motor is in my race car so it is a pretty harsh env. it had one weekend on it, a lot less than 1000 miles. but solid motor mounts and high revs out of the box.

Pretty sure I torqued everything correctly the first time. I was super careful, checking everything twice, atleast.

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