If you put back in ford head bolts then you would have a greater chance of blowing them again!

I've put 12k on mine since the studs with no problems. Did you have the heads checked to make sure there were no cracks and not warped?

I know of one that did. The guy was running DJs Looney tune to pull a 40 foot loaded toyhauler. Idiot. He had it to the dealer 3x for headgaskets. Kept blaming it on the truck. Oh and he has no gauges either.

If you are going to do it this winter I would also at minimum block the EGR off but the best thing would to be completely eliminate the EGR valve and EGR cooler.

If the tech doing it is competent, you should not have headgasket failures unless you're running crazy power. I've heard of people reusing the old gaskets, reinstalling warped heads, doing the studs 1 at a time without removing the heads, etc. If they do something dumb like that, then you can definitely blow gaskets studded.

If you have bad heads it doesn't matter what kind of gaskets or studs you put in there it will still fail.

"doing the studs 1 at a time without removing the heads"

Man who would ever think to do one stud at a time...LOL Oh yea, that would have been me. Luckily I asked this before the mechanic started...
