H11 studs are designed for folks who are removing cylinder heads regularly for maintenance such as racer, pullin' trucks and so forth. They're basically designed be used over and over and over and over again. For the weekend warrior trucks like yours and mine and 85% of the users on this forums, we may only remove the heads a handful of times after studding our trucks so ARP's are MORE THAN SUFFICIENT for our needs. With that being said, if you feel that H11's and their $1,100 price range are what you desire, go for it! I got my ARP's off ebay for $399 and free shipping.

Glad you got a hold of Odessa. Those are some great folks to deal with!

Where do you live? There are a bunch of places around. if you feel like learning a bit about your truck, tackle it yourself. There a a plethora of knowledgable individuals all over this forum that can help you out as they have done for me. I'm tackling mine next month, but this isn't my first time under the hood of a vehicle, just my first time working on a diesel. It will save you quite a bit of money too.

Understood. I'm not suggesting you machine the heads yourself, I'm suggesting you do all the rest of the work yourself. Get your heads from odessa (and they don't need to go to the machine shop from there because they're ready for install from them), get all the updated OEM parts, gaskets, filters, lubricants and so forth and tackle that job. No better way to learn about the truck than to dive in head first! There's plenty of support on the org and you'll be taken care of.

That seems higher than what I have heard before. I wonder if they went up on their prices?

When I talked to them, it was $650 for a reman and $700 for brand new ones. Brand new ones didn't have core charges and I have an unlimited mileage warranty on mine as well. I'd say that's still a he!! of a price for a cylinder head...

How much did they charge do you remember? If so is that parts and labor or just labor. I think I'm gonna ask the one ford tech if he will help on the side. I think I know someone that will let me use a lift to pull the cab.
