Yes, we used 574 on the case halves and the case webbing.
The ARP fasteners are so consistent that you can use torque in place of stretch on teh rod bolts. Every time we've cross-checked torque and stretch, they have been right in range.
Last updates is the car is running fine up in the Toronto area.
Chris, it's great to hear a builder say they use the torque method... I suspect 90% of people do. When you send your rods for resizing, I doubt the machine shop does length measurements...

I know the 574 is supposed to cure only in anaerobic conditions... But when I took my original case apart, there was rock hard glue internally along the seem lines internally in some spots. I can only assume thAt was Porsche original 574. Ever seen that? I assume 574 under quarts of oil is technically, anaerobic...

Great videos...
