Sorry I don't have pics of my studs, someone will chime in with a picture.

But in this first picture you will see a yellow "x" on the EGR delete tubing,on pass side and in front/under turbo. This tubing gets connected to the oil cooler housing then goes to the underneath of the intake manifold. Notice how it makes a u-turn. This is a EGR delete.

In the second picture, the yellow "x" is the metal tubing that goes from the oil cooler to the factory EGR cooler, notice how it don't make a u-turn.

If you can see the very outside of the heads, closest to the fenderwells you can tell. The very bottom bolts running down the outside of the head will look like the end of a bolt with a nut on it if it's got studs. If it looks like the top/head of a bolt, it's got factory head bolts.

See the pic below. The stud and nut right in front of his middle finger is what a stud looks like with a nut on it:



Here's a closer pic, just above the feeler gauge:

On a 6.0, look at the passenger side front bottom of the head, that is the easiest bolt or stud to see, all you need is a flashlight!
