Do I need studs and a EGR delete

I am going to put a turbo back four inch exhaust and an SCT with custom tunes on my truck very soon. Do I need to do studs and an EGR delete. This will be all I do to the truck forever. And of course gauges. Thanks guys.

ohhh how i've heard that one before

you wont need them unless they blow, its nice to have them and if you can swing it under warranty then more power to ya..the egr delete is nice as well. i have both and my truck runs great, but see how everything goes, you may never have a head gasket or egr problem

IMO I would at least block the EGR. Delete and add security!! Get them gauges ASAP and watch EGT's

Is that the only way to do it ( with a full delete kit) im not sure that is within my mechanical abilities ( unless its easier than it looks).

How much hp or boost can our trucks handle before studs are needed

really just a waiting game, you might blow your HG's or you might not, some get lucky and never do....most tuners will set you up with a tune that is safe for no studs (if you have none), and if you dont drive it like you stole it all the time, youll be fine.
