i read something in diesel power about the head bolts and gaskets on the new 6.4's. the bolts are 16mm and r tightened to 75 ft lbs, then they loosen them, retighten to 150 ft lbs, then something about two 90 degree turns. said they broke two sockets tryin to get them off. ended up havin to put an impact to it. they put head studs in because they were throwing in nitrous. i dont think u will have to worry bout head gaskets in the 6.4's. i think they concentrated on the weak parts of the 6.0 when buildin the 6.4. common rail, two egr coolers, and the whole head bolt thing. head studs wud be safer if u got the money though. good luck

If you are planning on big power, go ahead and stud it. If going moderate, no real need. If we can help in any way just let us know.
