What causes the head bolts to fail is kind of like a series of events if you will. They dont just fail like you may or may not have heard about. Typically, the coolant passages in the oil cooler plug causing the oil to over heat and the cooler to rupture and coolant mixes with oil and you know bad things happen. That is why it is SO important to monitor both engine and oil temps and see the difference between the two. If you see greater than 15F between the two while cruising on flat ground at normal temp, then you have a plugged oil cooler and need to replace it. Alot of guys delete the EGR cooler. In all honesty, get the CTS, monitor everything. If it checks out go from there. You would probably be ok with a tuner. A TB exhaust will be GREAT and wont harm anything.
