06 F250 dealer repair questions

Would like to know what the experts think of this. I have an 06 F-250 with 64K miles. The truck is completely stock with the exception of an Air Raid filter and SCT tuner. It started using approximately 1 gal water every 300 miles while towing a trailer. Local Ford dealer called and said major work was needed and they wanted to replace head gaskets, EGR cooler, and oil cooler. They said they could complete the work in 3 days. I have some concerns about the length of time given the amount of work that was required.

The work order reads as follows:

Test and replace degass bottle cap (vented at 10-12 psi)

Passed on-vehicle EGR cooler test, road test found ECT 210.2 and EOT 231.8

1 4C3Z *9P456*AF cooler-EGR
1 3C3Z*76A642*CA KIT
1 3C3Z*6C683*AB FILTER ASSY
1 9C3Z*8101*B CAP ASSY, RADIATOR
3 X0*15W40*5QSD OIL ENGINE
3 VC*7*B ANTI-FREEZE
2 VC*9* CLEANER-OXIDATION NEUTRALIZER
1 3C3Z*6731*AA KIT, ELEMENT AND GASKET-OIL F
2 6C3Z*6051*AA GASKET-CYLINDER HEAD
1 6C3Z*6C640*A CONNECTION-AIR INLET

65540 Head gaskets causing excessive pressure in cooling system 090803A,B,D,F 25.00 Test and replace degass bottle cap( vented at 10-12 psi), pass on vehicle EGR cooler test, road test found ECT 210.2 and EOT 231.8, replaced engine oil cooler, failed EGR cooler bench test, reassembled, road test, found cap venting at 15-17 psi submitted prior approval(approval code: PAAVX), replaced head gaskets, changed engine oil and filter, flushed cooling system, cleared codes and reprogrammed PCM, TCM, and FICM with latest calibration. Road test, re-test:”PASS”

Questions:
Does this mean they only changed 5 qts of oil?
Shouldn’t head bolts have been replaced along with gaskets?
Can the head be sent and checked for cracks and warpage given the 3 day period?
What is the likelihood of all this being done in 3 days?

sct does not equal stock. 3-5qt containers is 15 quarts. alot of shops can do it in 3 days if they are not busy. i would assume they placed the head bolt. you should have seen if you could have had them throw some studs in it.
