RCD "A Real 6.0 Solution"

Okay, So I've been doing some research and a friend of mine told me about River City Diesel having the EGR delete kit and I came across this-


Working daily, I do not have time (and honestly the resources) to pull the cab and do the extensive work required to do the head studs and gaskets. I was wondering what you guys think a reliable diesel shop would charge to do a job like this. I appriciate any input and advice.

What I think is that you can do so much better by sourcing your own parts separately. You will also get more reliable pieces.
For instance, it has been shown that those "black onyx" head gaskets that were all the rave in the past are not holding up. In fact the stock head gaskets are outperforming them.
For all the Ford parts, call Tousley Ford 800-328-9552 or contact "parts guy ed."

After getting your Ford Parts, get the RCD egr cooler delete kit for $160 bucks.
Buy the SCT tuner from Quick tricks auto (for $425 with unlimited lifetime stock tunes) or Innovative.
Get the ARp's for 400 bucks
You may have paid a tad more, but in the end your ahead.

I think the shops will tag you for around 2-4 grand depending on many factors.
Also keep in mind your head must be sent out to a qualified machine shop, checked for flat/straight and magnafluxed for cracking. Should they need to be machined, the limit is 0.07"
If they must exceed that number, you will need new heads (which should also be checked for flat/straight, but you can skip the magnafluxing).
