Both work, I think it all depends on how well you prep both sides, motor and make sure you heads are sent to a machine shop checked for flatness and cracks.

How much would it cost, roughly, to have studs, heads, and an egr delete kit installed?

Would the price be about the same for just studs and heads? I just got my first truck and I don't want to risk them blowing.

May be lower for just the studs and gaskets but while it is all torn down you may as well take care of the EGR, new oil cooler, dummy plugs, STC fittings, O rings and things that are known for going wrong with these trucks. Otherwise unless your doing all this work yourself you will be paying for pretty much the labor X2 when you do the rest of the work later on. I just had blown head gaskets and had them put in ARP studs and OEM gaskets but even though my EGR and oil cooler we still working fine I had them do the works on it just to make sure that later I didnt have to re pay for all the labor.

RCD 4.5" lift with Airlift system, 4" MBRP turbo back minus KITTY & MUFFLER, AFE Stage II Pro Gaurd 7 intake, SCT X3 with Custom tunes, EDGE CTS for gagues with Pyro Probe, ARP studs, BPD Egr, Updated FORD oil cooler, Diesel Site Coolant Filter, AirDog II, 6.4 Banjo's, Upgraded BLUE fuel pressure spring, autometer in cab fuel pressure gaugs, Mag Hytec rear Diff cover, Full HID Xeon lights with HID Foggs, Recon LED tail and 3rd break lights all on 35X12.5R20's Toyo M/T's, XD Misfit rims.
