arps without pulling heads

I know some people are going to say you need to pull the heads but I would rather not . . I have an 07 powerstroke only thing done to it right now is an exhaust and I really want to run an EGR delete and get it studded . . my truck doesnt have any puking issues and has very low miles and I would like to just take one bolt out at a time and replace with arps . .anyone done this? I'm also interested in someone around Ky that would do this? I heard Swamps and emailed them about it and they shot me a 3k price . . . but they were going to pull the heads install egr and put a new oil cooler in too so really I dont gues thats a bad price . . . .

i wouldn't, we only have 10 bolts per head and when you remove just one your running risk of the gasket separating causing a leak. Do it right the first time and you wont have to worry about it again.

I say take it to swamps and let them do it for 3000 thats a fair price if that includes all the parts. If not do it yourself and pull the heads is a must!

I wasnt saying swamps price was bad . . . .thats a good price for what they were doing studsand egr delete all parts and labor for 3k is cheap . . . . However its still 3k . . . . and I was going to do this as a precautionary measure I'm not leaking or anything . .maybe I'll just got ahead and put the sct on it and worry about it when it does start leaking

You still have an engine warrenty so don't touch it. It's 3 grand now or 3 grand later might as well run it till it leaks. And if you get lucky it will happen under warrenty and cost you 2500 less and the dealer will do it.

Totally Agree with the above,plus:

IMHO you will cause a problem that currently does not exist. You will very likely break the seal of the existing gaskets. Also, I just did HG's myself and you won't be able to get all the studs in, heads on, unless you maybe ?? cut hole in firewall or lift cab.
