How many are running sct tunes without studs?

I bought my truck at 80k miles and from the oasis report it had head gaskets replaced at 75k just shortly before I purchased it. I have been SCT X3 with innovatice xtreme tunes since about 82k and now have a little over 90k with no problems yet, but then again for all I know the previous owner might have had the dealer put head studs in it. I wish I knew just for peace of mind, but oh well hope I don't find out the hard way if it's studded or not.

KNOCKING ON WOOD....I've been running an xcal2 with custom tunes for better than 2 years now, probably 25k miles or so, and the engine is still untouched.

It's hard to say really, since there are quite a few trucks out there that were never tuned and the head gaskets let go, but then again some with tunes and still stock.

I suppose I'm one of the lucky ones, but at the same time, I don't get completely stupid with the truck when I have a tune loaded. I usually only run a tow file anyway.

you can see if there are headstuds or not if you look and you can see if it is a headstud or headbolt on the front top corner of the head. I dont have a fanshroud in but you can probibly still see. for a few minutes of looking it would be good for pirce of mind

I ran Innovatives Xtreme street from 8000 miles to 76,000 when a head gasket blew.. While they were in there I had them put in studs. I say go for it.
