I agree - use the stretch method for the installation of the ARP rod bolts. In fact, even though I did all the assembly work on my engine, I had my machinist, Neil Harvey (Performance Developments) assemble the crank/rods for me because I didn't want to purchase a stretch gauge. In addition, as was pointed out by spuggy, the rods are in weight groups. In my instance, I had a rod with a slight bend in it (that didn't sound right) and it took a few weeks for Neil to track down a rod that would match...he had already reconditioned the other 5.
