Watch this Ford 289 V-8 engine go from basic to bruiser

It may have been brought up already, but why no screw in studs? I don’t have them in the 289 in my '68 Cougar, but nowhere near the spring pressure or lift. I think if I went to a comparable cam to the 271 hp cam, I would go with screw in studs just to insure no pulled studs.
