Did anything change on the bolt hole problem with the 96" cases. We're getting ready to swap cams in an 07 and wondering if the same problem exist with the 2 holes that seem to strip out. I'm assuming it hasn't changed and if so probably need to get some studs beforehand.

No change, either install studs or torque carefully.

Thanks socko. They came out fine. I cleaned the threads up real good on the bolts. Ran them in and out a few times with parts cleaner to clean the bolt holes. Then cleaned out the holes with parts cleaner. Used blue loctite, so hopefully won't run into any trouble if they need to come out again. If I have to go in there again I will probably plan ahead and get the studs ahead of time and not worry about that again. I had heard some horror stories about them stripping and maybe worried too much.

You won't have any trouble getting them out with blue locktite on them, they'll come right.
