Raceware is the unmatched leader in engine fastener design and manufacturing for Porsche engines. We use these kits in every competition build that goes through our engine shop, as well as the majority of street engine builds depending on customer preference. Raceware as a fastener company specializes in German marques, and is in our opinion, the only brand to use on a Porsche car. 
Using the best aerospace quality materials, Raceware head studs are designed, tested and independently verified and rated to 205,000psi tensile strength. Additionally they allow for proper thermal expansion, an important consideration on an engine which could see operating temperatures from below zero to 300°+ fahrenheit depending on conditions. Raceware-equipped engines see better case / cylinder / head sealing without leaks, and without relying on excessive nut tightening torque and clamping force. Not only a more reliable solution, but one which does not risk damage from head / cylinder / case distortion from those excessive forces. 
Simply put: if you are rebuilding your Porsche's engine use Raceware fasteners.
