Decision to do one or the other

Ok guys, i will have the cash to do one or the other. What would you guys do first? BPD Air Cooled oil cooler or due the Head Studs/Head Gaskets and whatever comes in the solution kit.

In all honesty, I would do the BPD cooler but I would just save until you can get a few extra bucks and do that with the studs all at once.

Really depends on your goals for the truck. If you are looking to tune it and get soeme power out of it do the studs. If you are just going to leave it basically stock with just a tune do the BPD remote oil cooler.

My opinion would be (and I love the BPD kit) to do the studs with an EGR delete, coolant flush, and new OEM oil cooler. This (at a minimum) will allow you to do whatever power adders you want really and buy some time IF the new oil cooler was going to clog.

This. Studs are inexpensive compared to the price of the BPD kit. Save a little more and do everything at once.

I don't know what studs are going for these days but I got mine off ebay for $399 with free shipping. $400 when compared to the $2300 I spent on the BPD kit....it's nothing. lol

I'm with his opinion.
If it applies, I'd also upgrade stc, dummie plugs, stand pipes. Do the blue spring upgrade as well. Refurbish your turbo and upgrade oil lines.
