i've also heard good things about them its just a little farther than i wanted to travel due to either needing to stay there if they can do it in 2 days or needing a ride home but they are not completely ruled out.

My buddy and i did it i have to say it wasnt as bad as i thought it would be but i will say you need an assortment of tools swivels and small hands also be creative when stuck it only helps otherwise the head shop took 5 damn days to get my heads back which was crazy long. Really just take lots of pictures and take your time took us 7 hrs to tear the motor down and remove the heads took about another 8 to reinstall everything....oil cooler egr delete heads studs coolant flush and cat1 fill love the way my truck runs and it starts was better than it ever did....after we got it started never thought air could take so long to get outta a system the 6 liter bible was a huge help with remembering where things went and torque specs
