Stock studs work great. I wouldn't use anything except the stock Ford gaskets.

Easy as that :)

Another + on the stock gaskets.

Stock studs work fine but I have done a couple LT's with the Stage 8 locking bolts and REALLY like them. Need to keep in mind the stage 8's are MUCH easier to use with an engine on a stand instead of in the car.

In the car they may be more of a PIA unless you have the k-memeber dropped.

Copper gaskets are good, I used the percy aluminum and love them. They are reusable as well. As for bolts arp locking or if your on a budget the Medelin bolts (or somthing like that are pretty cheap and a little better than factory.

You can also get a variety of fasteners from Pro Weld Performance Parts. I am using stainless studs from them on my new engine (along with a bunch of their others fasteners).
