Okay so I'm rebuilding a motor right now and I wanted to use arp head studs but they don't make them for 5sfe so would the 3sgte work?

Also flywheel bolts where can I get
These other then from the dealer

The dealer is pretty much the only place for the flywheel bolts. Also, unless you're making >160HP on the 5SFE you probably shouldn't worry about the head studs, just get OEM. You won't ever get beyond that without some serious money on upgraded cams/other engine work.

If you plan on doing a 5SFTE or 5SGTE that's different, but it sounds like you're staying NA.

You can't reuse the old one can you?

I wouldn't, no. Those bolts are made to stretch, and they don't re-compress. If you reuse them then you're asking for trouble.

You can re use flywheel bolts no problem. Toyota head bolts usually have a length spec and if they are in spec you can re use them without issue.

About as positive as I can be. What does the service manual say about the flywheel bolts? I've never replaced them on anything unless something looked funny.

Exactly.
