Lifted heads

Who can confirm they've lifted heads, and what mods?
This is to settle a side arguement. Im by no means pointing fingers at anyone, just trying to gather evidence, or rather a lack there of.

I have! On the 275 tune after about 8k, been running the 310 for a while now and it's been all good, I think it was a flaw from the factory.

Never have blown a set in any of our trucks, or any trucks that we have used for testing.

The ONLY sets I know of that have failed were severely overheated first from radiator failure. These gaskets simply don't come unglued from proper tuning regardless of HP so long as temperatures are kept in check.

I did. 250 tune. Weak factory gaskets/bad rad. Studs solved the issue.

I did on my 08 350 when it over heated but it was not because of tunning.

RE:head lifting or gasket

Im puking. Ran 275 v2 for 8,000 miles with no issues and jumped to the 310 w/a TCM. Jumped back to the most recent 275 w/TCM and still blowin chunks.

Im going to do studs very shortly (waiting for an 8 hour day to commit to the project) and we will see if that fixes it. If not , off with her heads.
