Couple questions before I dig into my heads.
Okay Ford friends, my 05 has once again blown gaskets.....I think. Been about 2 years since I had my ARPs and Hypermax gaskets installed along with EGR delete. I got the truck real hot the other day on accident. EGTs were sittin at about 1300 for like 10 or 12 seconds before I realized it. White smoke came bellowing out the tail pipe and the degas bottle started pukin. I guess it's pretty apparent that it was a blown head gasket correct?? If theres any other cause any of you might know of to cause these symptoms please educate me. I shut the truck off and had er towed to my house. I'm defenitely going to be doing my own repair due to lack of money haha. Can I reuse my ARP studs? I expect to leave the truck in the garage and take my time. as much time as needed to do it right. Any input would be welcomed and appreciated.
