I just dropped my truck off today to my mechanic for my stud job. I think a lot of people on here would tell you to go ahead and rebuild your oil cooler and egr delete. I ordered the MKM Customs kit and it came with everything you could possibly need. Accept a coolant filter of course which is a good idea when starting off with a fresh cooler.

I am no mechanic, but that is my two cents for you.

I put studs in my truck. I did it with cab on and didn't get the snap on tool. I did remove the heater core. The only place it was tight was lower rear driver side stud. I had to pound the sheet metal a little to get the head of the torque wrench in there. I would agree with oil cooler, egr delete and coolant filter.

I don't know of anyother way to remove the passenger head except to evacuate the a/c system and remove the heater box with evaporator. I tried to do the same thing and just couldn't get to all the bolts. Plus trying to torque them will be much easier.

On the driver side pull all the bolts except for the lower rear driver side. When pulling I tightened a rubber band round the bolt and pulled it out as far as I could. This allowed me to pull the head and not get hung up by the bolt. You won't need to dent the firewall until the head is out of the way. Mark the firewall were the torque wrench head is. Once the head is removed pound the firewall in that area to give you clearance. This will give you clearance when torquing the studs. They taller than the factory bolts. I had to make about an inch deep dent.
