Arrow Studs done wo/ lifting cab, removing AC, or special tools

Just finished the truck. Here is a list of everything I did:

Up-pipe scoop removed
SCT tuner w/ Inn. Diesel tunes
EGR delete
Oil cooler rebuild
Cooler drain back screen
High pressure STC rebuild
High pressure stand pipe replacement
High pressure dummy plug replacement
Turbo disassemble and cleaning, inspect unison ring
Turbo drain back tube upgrade
Head inspection for cracks and warp age
Exhaust manifold gasket upgrade
Injector seal replacement
Victor head gaskets
ARP studs set to 240 ft lbs
Oil cooler rebuild


We did everything without lifting the cab or removing the AC system. We had to remove the EVAP cover, but that is it. We did not not use any special tools either. I do suggest having a bunch of different wobble joints and extensions.

After its all said and done, if you have the means to pull the cab. I would go that route. Much easier on the gut and back! It will also be much faster.

The only problem we ran into was when we started it the first time we ended up bending a push rod and break a rocker arm. This is not common, but is known to happen when the heads have sat for awhile.

It took us 2.5 days, 1 day of parts chasing, then 1 day dealing with the bent push rod. Rebuilding the oil cooler, turbo, HPOP, & fabbing the EGR delete added quite a bit of time.

For all that work I would without question have pulled the motor. No way could I do all that with the engine in. They have to get a hoist to get me out of the engine compartment.

Hell of an undertaking. Good job.

It is thicker and stronger than the what came in it.

It had its trying moments, but really its just time more than being hard. The book is the POS one from O'Reillys. It was only used for torque specs. I have instructions offline to help rebuild the HPOP. Other than that we figured it out as we went.

Yeah, if I did it again the cab would be off.

That is the EVAP cover I removed to access the head bolts. They are suppose to seal better than oem.

Haha, thanks. Other then the bent push rod/broken rocker, it was not too scary. The HPOP is not bad, just takes time. You dont want to mess it up, will be pricey fast.

Thanks for the info and great pics. Geeting ready to jump in my motor too. I have been pondering to pull the cab or go at it upside down. Wonder how heavy the cab is? Can it be man handled?
