ATS Head Coolant lines

Has anyone else done this? When I blew my head gaskets the diesel shop recomended that I have the heads drilled tapped and return lines to the water pump.

your sig said you already did this whats up with that. i wouldnt do it you dont even need it. the only reason you got hot is cause you had a blown headgasket. if you do it go with elites they have more experience with the 6.0 than ats.

I had Elites lines put on in Jan. when my HG blew and they seem to be helping. They are one of those things that I think are a cheep mod to help with the life of your 6.0.

I already did this because the shop said it was a good idea. But since I had them done I have had a lot of workmenship problems with the shop, They had the heads off 3 times and it went back 6 times before they got it running correct over a 2 and a half month time!!! and 3,500.00!! Since then I had herd of the shop giving guys more problems and selling things that people don't really need!! Just trying to find out if i got ripped off!
