Question arp studs, yes or no on 6.0

still running on stock head bolts and gaskets at 70,000 + miles. truck has been lifted all of its life with 37's, so miles are more than the odometer reads. been running a tuner or chip all of its life. truck is a january of 03 build date. it also makes 35 psi of boost. should i leave it alone or do studs before warranty runs out?

that is the thing. it is not stock. it is running xtreme race from eric at innovative diesel. it will cost me almost 800 to a grand for the tech to make it happen, so i am wondering if i really need the studs since it has been ok so far?

I think you are pretty lucky nothin has happen so far. It will cost you a hole lot more if your truck does break down without those head studs... Anyone will tell you to do them especually if your running a programer.. Better to be safe than sorry.

I would say do them anyways if you have the cash to burn.

Also, not to hijack, but can you go to the dealership and have them replace the studs do to coolant puking? They have already replaced my degass bottle and it still pukes, everything else checks out according to Ford though. I guess can I use the TSB for heads/coolant puking to get them done without them being blown?
