Head Studs vs stock

I noticed a lot of people on this website have head studs installed. What kind of mods are safe to do with stock bolts and what is the average cost of having head studs installed.

Head studs installed... $1200-$1500. What is safe to do without them maybe 400rwhp but it is really a crap shoot. Stock trucks have stretched head bolts.

That price range is about right. It is a crap shoot no doubt. Now there are mods that I could suggest that would help with reliability but they wouldn't really add anything to power. ARP studs do allow you the greatest flexibility for power mods.
