Head Gaskets Second time around

Hi I just had my head gaskets replaced under warranty on my 05 PSD. They wouldn't fit studs for me so had to go with the stock bolt. I was just wondering if anyone had had the gaskets go a second time around or whether the new gaskets and bolts fixed the problem for good. I'm not running a tuner, but do have a 4" exhaust and a K&N intake

I had to do mine again 15,000 miles after the dealer did them and I did have studs installed.

The dealer checked with a straight edge which obviously didnt work cause I did the HG's the second time and the machine shop took off .007 to get them flat. Ordered my black onyx from you adam and now were good to go. Its nice to open the hood and never see any dried coolant on bottle.

right, now lets see what the OP has to say. That's the thing with most dealerships, they only visually inspect the heads (if that) and put it back together..that's not the "right" way

That's because Ford WILL NOT authorize the heads to be sent out to the machine shop. If any claim is submitted with an outside source involved, Ford will bounce the claim, and the servicing tech will be debitted for the time he was paid for the repair.
