Head gaskets and EGR delete

I have a 2006 f250 and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on Head gaskets and an EGR delete. I plan on dropping in Hypermax injectors and ARP Studs but I don't know about the gaskets or the delete. Thanks everyone.

From what Ive read OEM head gaskets ar the only way to go also have the heads milled. I dont know what EGR delete kit is best.

OEM head gaskets and there are countless egr deletes that are pretty much the same. Make sure it comes with a passenger side up-pipe.

There are countless threads if you wanna get opinions on the black onyx gaskets, just search. With that being said you can't go wrong with the quality on the oem gaskets.

What else besides EGR delete, studs, gaskets and injectors should I do while while its all torn apart? Any frequent wear items I should get out of the way?

The failure of the Black Onyx Head Gaskets falls back on mainly installation error. Block & Head prep are where it is at and making sure that the heads are properly torqued, you dunno how many shops I have seen and heard about torquing them at the OEM Ford Spec instead of ARP. To date, we have had one known failure, the end result was the head was warped and the shop didn't check it. These heads are check width wise instead of the normal length wise, I have attatched the Ford procedure on how to properly check these heads.

The shop that did my head gaskets used Black Onyx. After a 3500 mile trip towing my trailer, it started puking coolant again. At tear down they found the head torque OK (per ARP specs), heads and block were flat (heads were new at gasket install but rechecked anyways), but still exhaust was passing the gaskets on two cylinders. They used Ford gaskets on the second round (under warranty....whew!) and I've had no problems to date.
