Studs and EGR delete

Hey guys, I'm going to be getting head studs and an EGR delete. Just wondering what you guys would suggest as far as the head stud brand (I think ARP is supposed to be good) and what EGR delete kit would be best because I know there are different types. Thanks.

ARP's through Brown's Diesel are the cheapest. A1 Industries H11 Studs are stronger, but they are twice the price, and unless you are Fire Ringing the heads, with 190+ injectors and a big turbo you wont need them.

EGR delete, First Coast is great if you have $600+ and dont have an Emissions inspection in your state.

Otherwise, $2.50 for 2 freeze plugs, a Mig welder and a little bit of time, you can weld closed the EGR Cooler and still look like everything is there.

I think ARPs are the way to go. First coast diesel performance has a great EGR delete kit. thats what i run on my truck. no issues and I am pretty sure that if the cooler is still in place, even if the up pipe has been blocked off that you can still get cooler failure. if its apart, you might as well fix it all instead of having to pull everything off again.
