generally....puking coolant...overheating or strange temp fluctualtions, sometimes intermittant loss of heat due to exhaust gas in the coolant.....

EGR cooler failures are about 10 times more common than stretched head bolts though.....

Keep us informed Stump. I was getting ready to order a similar package as you. If headbolts is your trouble, which I hope it isn't, I may have to restrain myself and stay away from the hot tunes.:rain:

the reason i figured maybe head studs, is cause i crawled up under my truck and looked up on the driverside on the motor, noticed some oil , looked somewhats fresh and seemed to be around the heads, wasnt a tremendous amout but looked kinda fresh
