Thumbs up new modding info!

i visted a local diesel shop and priced what he would charge me to install some things. i asked about puting 190 or 225 injectors in a 6.0 a larger turbo and such. he said that he dont need to raise the body to install the injectors and that it wouldnt need studs since it is a newer 6.0? the old ones had differnt studs in them only charge me 400-500 bucks to install injectors probly not much more for turbo and fass lift pump. sound like a winner? lol

i wouldnt put bigger then 190s in the truck and you dont need to pull the cab to do injectors. BUT you do need to have studs installed. people with stock trucks can blow the stock bolt and gaskets...

what are you plans for this truck? what are you looking to do. anything over 190s really takes away from it being a daily driver.

ARP's are head studs, 6.0's come with head BOLTS from the factory. '05+ 6.0's have a little bit thicker head gaskets and a different torque sequence for the head BOLTS but, they can still stretch in stock form if the truck works hard.

If you are going that route I too recommend studs, and an EGR delete. Might as well do it all in one shot. With larger injectors you are going to want them

this guy acted like i was stupid when i asked him about putin arp studs in didnt they would need them but he has installed them on early model 6.0's. is 500hp to much to haul gooseneck trailers with and does 400-500 bucks sound reasonable to install the injectors?

Thats seems reasonable to me. I would still have him do studs though. The factory bolts and torque specs changed a little on the trucks. There is less of a chance they stretch but they still can

500 isnt to much, im shootin to do 190's a 62/70 turbo and put mine on laughing gas as a daily driver, (gas only at the track) but im hoping 500-550 as a daily driver. you should be fine with that. idk about your egt's towing though but a water meth kit will get rid of all that
