Calling head gasket experts.

2004 142k no head issues at all even with tune.

6.0*Full*Solution for Powerstroke 6.0L*(EGR Delete, Studs,*All Gaskets, & Oil Cooler)

Thats the kit im buying my question is should i call them and tell them to not include there head gaskets or are these good to go with? I know the black onix are trash. Ya i do research hahaha.

Also minus dummy plugs, stand lines, turbo upgraded feed lines, locktight... Does this kit have everything i need?


Just rebuilt by buddies 7.3 so were no newbies mechanic wise.

Btw doing it in my apartment complex parking lot ha oh the fun it will be.


Thanks guys and gals

Not only no, but HELL NO. Google Cobb's Diesel.

You need to improve the quality of your research.

Done a lot of research here. Bulletproof diesel is the only way to go. They are expensive but you get what you pay for. And their customer service rocks.

Re: Calling head gasket experts.

Read the stickies for a head gasket parts list. The "kits" are usually stupid expensive. Best to shop around for the best prices.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

there's a lot of crap in that kit that is completely unneeded. not only is it a waste of money, but a waste of time. the intake gaskets are reusable. the valve cover gaskets as well. don't need valve cover bolt grommets replaced. valve stem seals never have problems on these, so leave them alone. never use exhaust manifold gaskets either.

i agree with southend. make a parts list of parts that actually need replacing or are a good idea to replace while you're in there and shop around for those specific parts. it's more work, because you'll need to research on each brand to determine the quality, but you'll save money, and you'll get a custom kit. not one decent part and a bunch of other cheap parts

Exhaust manifold gaskets are recommended if you're pulling the manifolds.

i've seen them cause more leaks than prevent. you'll get a high pitched whistle as the gasket turns into a reed.

i usually just true them up on the belt sander, then use silicon to seal them. have never had an issue with that method. the gaskets on the other hand..

One more question.

I have a 04/2004 6.0 with the braided turbo lines and that leaky sensor by the turbo not valve covers.

I read a few places there are diff stand pipes and updated feed and return lines and also dummy plugs.

Can you guys give a site that sells these parts for the NON 2004.5 6.0.
