so just curious...

how bad of a job is doing head studs? i know eventually I'm going to be staring at it... I don't have the cash to allow someone else to dive into that experience for me....

i've done an egr delete, oil cooler rebuild, and stc fix on mine so far --- what is the comparison to those?


i love punishing myself

Well its around 25 hours IIRC by a trained mechanic.

There are people that have done it one stud at a time with heads on. Results depend on condition of heads and gaskets already there now of coarse.

Best way is with new head gaskets and heavily torqued to 245 lbs.............

You don't torque to 245 ft/lbs that will Yeild the studs and ruin them. You torque to 210 ft/lbs.

Op click the link in my signature. I just did mine about a month ago. It's not a bad job at all just be prepared and have everything ready before starting the job.
