Major overhaul coming!
So I've had a small dribble leak of oil between the block and transmission. Took it to Ford twice while in warranty and they said it was the rear main each time so they replaced it...twice. Still leaks. Took it back and they did further testing, consulted with Ford directly, and came to the conclusion after 3 weeks that it was the bed plate seal. Super! Good news is the dealership is going to pay for it since they misdiagnosed the problem while it was in warranty.
Here is my question(s). While the engine is out, I would like them to do some work to it like head studs, oil cooler, replace EGR cooler, etc. I looked on bulletproofdiesel.com and compared thoroughbreddiesel.com for the same parts and bulletproof is way more expensive for some reason. Also, BP sends OEM head gaskets in their kit to do head studs while Thoroughbred sells black onyx by sinister. Which one should I go with for head gasket? The head studs will be ARP.
Also, which exhaust should I run with? I'm looking at the 4" turbo-back MBRP stainless kit that would use my existing cat. Thoughts?
