Dont bother with srd
Arp main studs are from a bmw, I got my acl bearings from somewhere in essex, its all on the acl site
O/e gasket is more than man enough unless your going serious turbo
I use a vitara gasket with 12-1 comp ratio with no problems, I do the studs a bit higher than standard aswell

You dont need the stud kit but the price of new o/e bolts you might aswel get the arp studs, and they are reusable
Go on team swift and search , the part numbers are on there and if you dig deep enough you should find the right amount of tourqe
Always get suzuki o/e hgasket
What you doin bout the ignition side of things with the carbs?
As im switching to itbs soon theres no point keeping my mk1 gti dizzy so its up for grabs, if your interesred pm me
