Question about this. Is this a recall? Is what their replacing them with as good as ARP or should you bring ARP studs to the shop with you?

no, not a recall. the head bolts that are stock can stretch under heavy pressure/load, and thus u can end up blowing headgaskets The ARP headstuds do not allow the stretching to occur and thus more or less eliminating the problem. especially if you also get rid of the EGR Cooler at the same time. If you have your truck in shop for a headgasket problem and they are pulling the heads anyways, you can ask them if you supply the studs will they install them instead of another set of stock head bolts.
Plus, this is mainly a 6.0 problem. Your 7.3 should not have near the issues, although it would not hurt to stud the 7.3 either.

Roger that, I'm toying with the idea of going to a 6.0 and wanted to know this info. So the head gasket was is under warrenty? So I would have to suppy the head studs, ARP's, shoot those are expensive! I would tune the truck if I got it and if this is a problem with ALL 6.0's then that really makes me not want to get one.

some people have never had issues. I am in the middle of them now, going through coolant like crazy, hopefully dropping truck off Mon. They gaskets are under warranty up to 100k miles. These and the EGR issues are the reason for the 100k engine warranty from the factory. you can find a good deal on studs, Around $375 is cheapest I have seen new. PM me and can tell you where, they are not a sponsor so cannot post link, etc.
