Powermax on stock HG and headbolts?

Just curious how many people are doing this? I would like to to ARP's first but my local dealer said it would be around $5k! I guess they're on the high end. I thought about doing them myself, I'd like to but its still kinda intimidating. Anyways I just want to know if anyone has had problems running one on stock HG and headbolts or what. I have a good aftermarket warranty so if they blow, I might get studs done then. Just want to here what you guys think.

I am going to be trying it, but I am going to be doing an EGR delete, replacing oil cooler, banjo bolts, and the fuel spring upgrade.

The turbo alone will not cause the head gaskets to fail. I would say 75% of people we sell the PowerMax to have stock bolts/gaskets.



ICON Vehicle Dynamics | S&B Intakes | MBRP Exhaust | American Force Wheels | Diamond Eye | AFE Intakes | Carli Suspension | Industrial Injection | Garrett Turbos | FASS | Method Wheels | Bilstein Shocks | Airdog | KMC Wheels | Spartan | RSouth Bend Clutch | SCT | Edge Products | ATS Diesel | Bullydog | BMF Wheels | AMP Research | & much more....

My cousin has the Extreme race from Eric with the full solutions kit and I think my truck will run on his with just the SRL tune. I will be running my truck like this until I have enough saved up for some new injectors and labor on for that and studs; I need about $2000.
