My temperature gauge is not getting hot. If my head studs are blown, wouldn't my engine temperature be hot?

That is usually signs of blown head gaskets, if not egr cooler. But usually head gaskets. If the HG's have given up the go be sure to put some ARP head studs in to prevent this from happening agian.

Most say Brown Diesel has the best price, give a google search I think they want $375 compared to $550+

I think the best way is a compression test. But usually when if you idle (while at running temps) you will see LOTS of white smoke and will reak of coolant.

Check out the TX home town section and see if someone can give you a good shop to go see.

Just do a degas pressure test if you think it's the HG's.
To do this buy a pressure gauge and hose the same diameter as the hose going into and out of the degas bottle.
Run a hose with line from inside the cab(Window) to the inlet of your degas bottle were you disconnected the line going in. Install a T fitting so you can hook the gauge to the T line to let you know how much pressure is going into the degas bottle.
You need to drive about 30 miles or so and tell us what the pressure reads.
You do not want over 15psi. If it gets over 15psi. HG's are blown, If not, We need to look at other thing.
