Possible to blow head gaskets after studs and egr delete?

Is it possible to blow head gaskets after doing a full egr delete and apr studs?



First i don't pull anything with the truck and ocassionally hammer on it. Currently running the 300 HD tune set at the 250 hp level.



Popped the hood on saturday to find coolant everywhere around the degas bottle. Cleaned it all off and now taking it back to the place that did the work to determin what happend. He said possible thermostats. Which were replaced when the heads were studded. Makes sense to me but anyone else have any ideas why it would puke coolant. My coolant levels have stayed between the marks on a newly upgraded degas bottle. The degas bottle is bubbling when i turn off the truck as well.



I replaced dam$ near everything on the truck when the top was off to prevent having any issues. And when i mean everything its pretty darn close.



Thoughts?

Yeah man, anything is possible. But, I think the possibility of failure after studs and deletion depends heavily on wheter the work was done correctly or not. I did all of the above on my old 6.0 and blew the gaskets afterward. Found out that it was because the heads were not checked or replaced, and an abraisive pad was used to clean the surfaces. I'm not saying this is the cause of yours, but I'm saying there are a number of things that can be done incorreclty or even questionably that could lead to a failure. I hope the place that did yours warranties their work, and if so, your truck is still within that period.

black diamond gaskets, and yep i contacted the guy that did the work and he is looking at it tonight. It is still in his warranty of 12m, 12k thank god.

I hope its not the heads themselves but he assured me that they pressure tested them.

If you have to do gaskets again i recommend sticking with OEM gaskets.

Definately have the heads checked, magnafluxed, etc. Ive seen a lot of heads come off for gaskets and studs and have to have a new set go on because of cracks and warped too much. Also make sure the top of the block is checked

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying
