10,000 miles on my Black Onyx heagaskets! So far, so good.
Figured I'd start a thread on the status of my headgaskets. With everyone saying the black onyx/victor reinze gaskets are trash, I decided to start this thread to keep everyone up to date on mine. I installed them about 2 months ago, and my truck hasn't stopped running since. Nearly every mile has been hard towing (one occasion had me crossing the scales at nearly 26,000lbs), and she's been doing well. No sign of coolant loss or other signs of failure. I just got back from a 2500mile round trip towing another SD dually with an additional 5klbs of spare parts, and she's running like a top still! Updates to come periodically. I rack up mileage VERY quickly this time of year, so this is going to be an accelerated progress thread.
NOTE: Towing is done with my ID Aggressive tow tune, daily driving is done with my ID extreme street tune.
