What's the guy's name? Chris maybe?

He needs to fix his website.
This is wrong

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Rebuilding your stock 2.5L 4cyl?

This kit works with all years Fiero with a stock 2.5L 4cyl iron block engine


If you are building your engine for power, or you want extra safety in your build - YOU NEED THIS!


then, farther down the page,

 
quote
Fastener Style Stud Thread Size 1/2 in. Head Style Hex Fastener Material 8740 Chromoly Fastener Finish Black oxide Washers Included Yes Cut to Fit No Quantity Sold as a kit. Notes Iron Duke 4 cylinder.



I am running the ARP 1/2" studs, and they do not fit the stock block, nor do they fit the stock head bolt holes.

In fact, the last set I got was not even the correct length to clamp down on a stock Fiero head; the ARP kit comes with one short stud, whereas the Fiero engine requires two short studs, at the corners of the head.

Edit, looks like he's fixing it up.

The ARP 191-6001 kit is for rod bolts, that's not the kit we are offering.

The product we have listed is the head stud kit. The stock photo of the bolt kit (white background from ARP) is not necessarily representative of the actual product sold.

It's all kinda confusing actually.... It was TLG Automotive, everyone called it TLG, then they changed the name to Black Top Racing, and the website is different yet, 'blacktopupgrades'. Having a different website name than the company seems kinda odd to me. I guess it could have been a mistake, and they named the company before checking to see if the website name was available.....
