NEED advise. Headstuds?

I'm running the spartan 275, afe intake, and 4 inch dpf delete pipe. my truck is going in the shop for a blown headgasket. Will studs prevent this from happening again? just want to know the advantages. will there be enough clamping force to prevent another gasket failure? Any information on this will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Do you plan on just running the 275 always, or will you will be going up to the 310? It should be fine, but drive pressure is really high with those tunes. John has put a lot of miles on his truck with studs and no wastegate with no isses.....a lot HARD miles.

Hard enough to blow an injector line in half!

I recommend doing studs. I would also consider doing the Dirty Diesel EGR cooler delete.

There kit is supposed to be able to be returned to stock. They don't have their wastegate setup ready yet, but the cooler delete is $400.

You might as well go ahead and do the studs while you have it all apart. It is still possible that even with new studs you can blow your heads again but it will reduce the chance ALOT. It will be worth the money.

Getting the coolers off the truck prevents any flash boiling that occurs with them on the truck. This is actually considered to be one of the culprits of puking. Rob at Dirty Diesel says that it has stopped puking on any trucks he has done them on that puked before the cooler removal. It will also help getting your heat to work faster in the cab.
