2006 King Ranch getting Stud Job

I know my signature block already says I have these mods but thats because I bought them and updated it. It is currently in the shop now getting these as we speak FORD is doing it so I have peace of mind that it is done correctly:

ARP Studs
Bought Sinister BO Head Gaskets, got nervous about them because the more I read the more reccomends I find with OEM HG's. Comes with dummy plugs when Sinister doesn't so why not?
Driven Diesel Regulated Return Kit.
Coolant Return Kit.
Bulletproof Diesel's Oil relocation Kit w/PS relocation.
new Degas Bottle.
Coolant Flush.
Swamps 58V FICM with ID Moderate Tune.

If they replace other things I will keep this thread updated.

Go figure, this has been planned for months.
I just got out of the military and moved from NC to KCMO. I am waiting to close on a house August 14th. So as back up transportation I am using my 2005 ZX-10R. I feel like I'm over the crotch rocket and am ready to upgrade to an Ultra Classic Screamin' Eagle. So the bike was going to be used as a trade-in in a few months. Went to ride in to work on Thursday July 26th, and my bike wasn't in the parking lot of the apartment we are temporarily staying in until we close on the house. Perfect timing you idiot thieves, couldn't have waited until I had my truck back??

Well I have just heard of too many head gasket/stud jobs failing with black onyx head gaskets for me to ever use them in my truck. Especially since Ford is the one doing the work, I would be nervous. They do not machine the heads. If the heads are too bad they just get new ones and those still have proven to not be flat and need machining.

IMO, for the amount of money being spent to put this stuff on, I would pay $300 and get a set of OEM head gaskets. JMO though.

I agree!!!

FORD has a very bad rep of not machining the heads flat and just checking it with a straight edge. While it might work on other rigs, the 6oh is NOT the ride to cheap out on unless you want to be going back into it next year.
Also, It is getting WAY too common to hear another "failed BO Gasket" story... Do you realy wanna save $300 now only to go back into it and do it ALL over in a year

I would rethink my strategy if I was you man

Sorry guys, guess I wasn't clear there. I bought the BO HG's, but went ahead and had the FORD Parts girl (my sister) order the OEM HG's.

They are going to send the heads to the machine shop to have them surfaced, so no worries there either.
