ARP head studs, Ford Oil Cooler, Ford Head Gaskets, Dummy plugs and stand pipes, stc fittings, exhaust manifold gaskets. The key thing is to find a good machine shop and have the heads pressure tested and decked. Search the forum for a while and you can find a ton of info on how to stud your truck yourself.

no shops would mill heads 04 6.0

is it just me. when i did my hg's i could not find a shop to mill or table my heads. their reason was that ford requires that 13 spots on the head tested for thickness and if they fail to meet within the tolerances set out, that the heads r not to be shaved, or milled but discarded for new. the heads are 3.74" thick new and that is the minimum thickness ford requires that head to be. do machine shops warranty their work if the thickness falls below the recommended guidelines set by ford?
