i'm surprised the truck made it this long. i mean- i'm running the thing hard. You know that. I even ran a 13.69@97mph WITH the gasket blown up. It has ALOT more in it. I won't be surprised to clock off a 13.4 or 13.5 once it's all buttoned up. I'm just looking forward to know my motor is pretty much ready for anything! bummed out- yes. Hopeful- even more so!

so don't even worry about the gaskets, the stockers are good enough? it's most likely just the studs getting stretched and allowing the gaskets to move around and break? I mean- I'm getting new ones, but just go with the Ford part? that'll save me some dough

my truck is in the shop having head studs put in. i went with the ford HG's.

i make around 400rwhp and dont plan on going any higher. i bought my studs at elite and they said that with that HP that the OEM HG's would be fine with the studs.

i have seen THESE from Hypermax.

the OEM HG kit is gonna run you around 300.00 bucks. it comes with a bunch of gaskets to replace what they have to remove. so yes, you would save a but load by going back with the OEM gaskets.

Those Hypermax look tasty! I've read atleast 30 posts at this point, vouching for the stock gaskets so I might try and save money there, and put it towards a new turbo.... hmmm

I have the stock HGs and have not had a problem with mine. I did the ARP studs. When ever they are in there, be sure and do the EGR block off so it takes care of the puking problem too. Even with studs, you will still flash boil the coolant and puke from time to time. Good luck with it.
