I know this is a very old thread but I've just done my 4th gen 3sgte with arp head studs and the slip of paper says 80ft lb with arp fastener lube
I accidentaly used the torque spec for the custom age 625+ studs instead of the standard ARP ones. 80ft lbs vs 60ft lbs, I have 400 miles on the engine so far OEM headgasket.

Not that it matters anymore, but for the record

ARP -did- make a mistake on 3SGTE head studs a long time ago (around this original post's time) and listed 36. That was NOT correct. Many people had issues related to them loosening up pretty soon after install. They have since corrected it to 65 lbs.
