Did the heads get replaced when the studs and new gaskets were installed? If the old heads were warped or pitted, that could be the reason the gaskets blew again.

Motor only had 10,000 miles when I put it in my truck and new head gaskets with studs were installed before I put it in. The heads were checked at a local shop and I was told they were not warped. just looking for some info on these hypermax gaskets because now that it is apart again I don't want to have trouble again.

I didn't firering mine so I can't give you any info on the gaskets. However, I do know that the heads have to be machined when you do firering them. It was going to cost me almost $1500, that's why I didn't do it. Hope someone can help you out bud.

Stay away from Hypermax "wire-rings" which do not require machining or "fire-ringing" the heads or block. I personally had a set fail while studded w/ ARP'S. Yes, the heads were checked and leveled. After the failure on my #5 cylinder we decided that the idea of wire-ringing actually creates a barrier for compression to try to push against whereas true fire-rings are seated into the heads (and the block ideally) offering a better seal. Fire-rings are going to be your best bet for higher HP applications although one recent post concerned a failure w/ fire-rings.
