Head stud install quote?

What would a reasonable ARP installation run on a 2005 DRW?

Well, depends on if you can get someone to do them under warranty or not. If you can it will be $100 plus the cost of the studs.

Does FORD cover it if you have a tuner/chip/etc?


If they don't let's say it would have to be done OUT-OF-WARRANTY, I've heard the dealership can run up to $2500 or so, and what would an aftermarket performance shop run?

Hi,

We do headstuds in Ocala, Florida. We also know of shops around the country that may be in your area. Let me know.

Thanks,
Vivian

I've heard of quotes ranging from $1500-$2500 plus studs. But that is just installing the studs. If you have to do it out of warranty and your heads are out of spec, now you're talking even more big bucks. So I always say, if your within warranty, reset back to stock and try a dealer. It can't hurt to try.

Oh, and Logan, I lucked out, no $100 deduct. for me, I was less then 36,000 miles.

Ok, I'm just trying to get an idea because I'm looking at a 2005 DRW. If you all have had success after running a chip/tuner and getting the head studs under warranty, I think I'll risk it and set it back to stock if it happens...

A lot of times you can tak the chip, tuner out of truck and take it in. However if the dealer wants to be difficult and a rep comes down, they can tell a chip or tuner has been installed just by looking at the top of the pistons. The burn pattern on the piston is a perfect 6 sided star if the chip has been installed. I got lucky when I had mine done because I used to work at the dealership I took it to and was real good friends with the diesel tech. Cost me $100 ded. + $450 for the studs.
