Question about the ARP head studs...

Hey guys. I have an '06 PSD with 30k. I have the SCT Livewire, afe airbox, and turbo back 4" exhaust. Before I have problems Im getting a friend of mine to do the the head studs. He's a ford mechanic and is doing it on the side for $900. I thought that was a pretty good deal so Im doing it. My question is after I do this, is there anything else I need to worry about if I run my SCT on the "performance" map??
Thanks,
Ernie

I would block the EGR cooler if not delete the whole thing. That is another common problem with 6.0's.

Still a fair deal, And yes, Ask him to do an EGR delete while he's in there. I'm sure he will do so.

Good Luck

But If your only at 30K, Why do them now, Your friend is a Tech. You will not have any problems getting warranty coverage if you have a problem

He told me Ford is really cracking down and sending out people to varify no "mods" have been done. Even checking the burn on the piston? So I figured its better to have it done, rather than get stranded someplace. I drag race (not my truck, a car) and tow an enclosed trailor alot so I dont want any headaches. Thanks for the heads up on the egr delete.

With that said, Your on the right track. Do it and you will have avoided a potential week point and problem
