16V Head stud kits

I'm going to install head studs on my 16V engine to handle to increased power output . What options do I have? Bekkers sells a kit for $300, but I think that's a bit too expensive.

Amazingly, Raceware Fasteners sells a kit for the 16V. Is this a reputable company? Has anyone used their studs before?
I'm going to contact ARP too, as I'm sure they have a size that'll fit my application.
Are there any other companies that sell studs for my car? Any experiences or opinions? How much should I have to pay for a kit?

What about main studs and conrod studs (I have the early 84 conrods with studs)? Are there any companies that sell anything for this engine?

Raceware was on the market first with stuff for german cars. I was a big dealer at one point. The stuff is great made well.
ARP did all the american stuff then invaded the euro market. They are both great products. But we still x-ray & magnaflux the bolts and nuts. When your building an engine for a race team you need to be 100% sure the part is not going to fail. So far I have not had a failure from either products.

Raceware is a top of the line company, with Porsche race cars,
Everyone takes out the stock ones to put raceware studs.
Hope this helps with the rebuild.
GREAT 16V!!!!!!

Thanks for your reply! I'll probably end up going with the raceware studs!
