Good question, Mine is at the dealership and I'm thinking of doing the same thing! Any help? ARP with stock gaskets or ARP with the black onyx head gaskets?

Studs are the way to go, if you are going above stock power/boost. they are more or less mandatory on the 6oh.

I've also been wanting to run 37s on my truck. I see you have them on yours. Few quick questions, is the truck noticably slower now? 6" lift clear 37s? how does it drive compared to stock? and how bad is your MPG now?

yes the truck is slower but not to noticeable i mainly notice it when going around 40-45 it wonts to up and down shift alot. the ride is pretty good i have the rize 6" radius arm lift with the icon resi shocks, i clear 37" with no rubbing with 18x10's and 4.5" backspacing, make sure u run 4.5" backspacing or they will rub. for the fuel mileage i cant tell cause i havnt recalibrated my speedo so my miles traveled are off, and i aint payin 200 for a calibrator, but i would say around 16-18 mpg but i dont worry about mpg it is a truck and i only drive it on the weekends. i did see 20 on dj's street tune on my insights instant mpg i was going about 55 60 mph for 25 miles and it fluctuated between 18-25(but this is still with the speedo off)

i think it is for the amount that has been milled off the heads to return it to stock clearances
