Head Studs

So I'm getting a custom tune from Eric and I'm not sure if I have head studs or not...i'm going to check tomorrow but just in case I don't have them, I'm just wondering how hard it really is to install head studs? Do you HAVE to pull the cab? How long does it usually take? How much does it cost???

Thanks in advance


-Ben

You can do it with out taking the cab off!!! just have to remove the intake, evaporator case, and anything connected to the heads. you have to have a heavy duty crane to do it though. it is a pain in the *** and very time consuming. also very expensive!! you can pull the cab if you have the recourses to do so!!
