ARP Head Stud cost??

A local diesel place in Houston is Houston Diesel Performance, I contacted them regarding a ARP Head stud and gasket swap on my 6.0L. They wanted $3600....is that too pricy? The ford dealership would put in ARP studs if I brought them in for $2700. Only problem is i'm not sure they have knowledge on torquing sequences, etc. for the ARP studs.....

Anyone whos had it done by someone, any prices? Is $3600 reasonable??

I had mine done at a dealer ship and they did a fantastic job. As far as the price I'm not sure mine was done under warranty.

Who ever you have complete the job have them install the bracing for the oil fitting on the back of the pump. I had mine go out 2 months later and i was out of warranty. I don't know what the part is but it is only $20 for the part and they will have access to install it when they install the head gaskets and studs.

Bring it to the dealer to have it done, arps get torqued in the same sequence as the oem bolts. Only difference is you have to read the piece of paper that come with the studs and do the sequence in 3 equal parts to get you to 245ft lbs. I did my install myself and if you have the tools and the space to do it Id recommend doing it yourself. If not go to the dealer.

Thinking bout doing my girlfriends truck to save her cash. Whats up were certain parts pretty hard or is it just a matter of following procedure and keeping everything clean and organized?

$3600 for just a stud job and gaskets is outrageous. But you should ask the shop what all the price includes. A lot of private shops will do the job right, as in do more than just the studs. For that price I would expect that the heads will be fluxed and decked. An EGR delete should be included, and the oil cooler may be replaced or inspected and cleaned. All fluids should be changed, etc, etc... Find out what's included in the job before you say it's too expensive.
