Check out this thread on ARP installation technique at TDIClub:
Steps for proper ARP installation on the A4 TDI:
1. Unpack and clean with alcohol all the parts (gets the sticky packing
grease off of them)
2. Prepare all of the bolts before starting by covering them all with
the included ARP installation grease that is included. Basically, get it
in all of the threads and cover all the washers, and bolts so that they
look "grease grey" all over. On the nuts use a q-tip to make the threads
on the inside grey with the ARP grease.
3. Remove your plastic engine cover, and crank case cover.
4. You'll need a from Part MN0812 - 12 Point Driver Set from
metalnerd.com or a similar 12 mm,12 point driver to remove the factory
(NOTE: If you are going to use the metalnerd tool, it is long and will
require you remove your EGR to get the one of the headstuds out. If
you're removing the EGR, then this is a great time to cleaning out your
intake and install an elephant hose, or CCV catch can and an Epsilonian
5. Remove the 1st headstud. You will need a breaker bar, and it comes
off with a scary "snap" sound.
6. Put your the first prepared ARP headstud in (allen wrench side up)
and use an allen wrench to tighten it all the way down. Don't over
tighten, just a little past snug.
7. Put the prepared washer and nut on the headstud and tighten it down
Using a torque wrench and bring it to 65lbs. (ARP instructions on their
website say to tighten, to something less than final torque, 5 times
before final toque to seat the fastener correctly. Continue following
these instructions to see how this is done)
8. Loosen it completely using a normal socket wrench (NEVER USE YOUR
TORQUE WRENCH TO LOOSEN ANYTHING YOU'LL DESTROY IT!)
9. Use the torque wrench to tighten to 70lbs.
10. Loosen it completely using a normal socket wrench.
11. Use the torque wrench to tighten to 70lbs.
12. 10. Loosen it completely using a normal socket wrench.
13. Use the torque wrench to tighten to 70lbs.
14. Loosen it completely using a normal socket wrench.
15. Use the torque wrench to tighten to 70lbs.
16. Loosen it completely using a normal socket wrench.
17. Use the torque wrench to tighten to the final 80lbs.
18. Hooray! You've installed your first headstud, now just repeat steps
#5-17 over and over again until you're done.
