Forgot that little piece of info!! No EGR. Was deleted some time ago.
Engine work was done less than 4000 miles ago.
From when the work was done and we worked through any air trapped in the system, since that time....and as of the past couple of days i've added 3 1/2 gallons.
The studs were done because of the typical issue of blowing out of the degauss bottle and therefore overheating.
Haven't tried pressure test while driving, but i did do a UView test prior to the re-torque and found exhaust gases were leaking into the cooling system. It hasnt been tested like that since. I've order my own kit and will do the UView test.
Regarding the re-torque...it's my understanding is that is the "old" way of doing things and it shouldnt need it if it was done right the first time.
I suspect a cracked head or bad gasket.
Another question...how many times can you retorque the ARPs??
I agree with you on whether they have enough 6.0 experience. They came recommended and do performance work on cummins, duramax and powerstrokes for pulling and regular maintenance.
