Is this a dealer only item, or is there a economical source for these?  I likely need at
least 2 maybe 3.

On that note, what is the best way to install and torque down the ARP studs?  Should I
heli-coil the block if it has seen several head installs ?

Just use the now recommended standard 3B/AAN/S6 steel gasket.
