Any issues with these versus regular APR Hi Perfomance bolts?

On one side of the argument is the regular ARP's knurled sides causes stress risers in the rod hole.

Other side I have heard is the Wave-Loc's interference fit on the caps makes it near impossible to separate the caps without a rod separater. So there's another $100 in tools.

But I should use a cap separator regardless of the fit anyways...

There's no price difference.

Any comments on wave-locs??

Unless you are doing a 100 % resto I would use aftermarket rods and not 20 or 40 year old rods. If you use original rods resize them and use the original bolts, not worth changing them. You can use either bolt but not recomended on stock rods.
