Question driveway head studs

i saw this in a diesel mag but was wondering if it is possible on our trucks....in other words has any normal person tried this in their driveway?the featured truck was a 6.4 if my memory serves me correctly but still a mag doing a feature more than likely isnt working with the same tools joe smoe is.anyway i was wondering if anyone has thrown in some studs at the house,if its worth doing if you dont have a head issue(i.e. should i wait for the gasket to go first),and info about the job such as time to complete,difficulty,and how many times you didnt want your kids right there to hear the big boy words?

Who says your HG's are going to blow? I sure hope that I never have to replace my Head Gaskets. I no longer run my 275, or 310 tunes so I hope that will keep my truck from blowing the HG's. You shouldn't have to worry about it unless you run a tune above the 275, correct guys?

Running Spartan Tunes AFE PG 7, Flo Pro 4" DP Back, thanks to Cobb's Diesel. It has been great so far.

The truck that this was done to ended up getting the heads removed and had new gaskets put in when it had some work done at Elite. His gaskets weren't blown though, so it did work. When the studs were done, the gaskets were fresh and only had a few hundred miles on them I believe. If a lot of miles are on the gaskets, don't do it.

It takes about 8 hours if you're mechanically inclined. Longer if you're not that good. But it can be done.

well if thats the case ill just wait til they blow and put the studs in.i mean im pretty good at turn a wrench on a helo but you know the first time you do something you always do it a little slower than it should take.

Do you know the possibilities of what could happen if one does go? That is not something I would want to wait for to happen. Could be buying a lot more than a new gasket...

8 hrs. is what it took me to do the first time. If you work on whirly birds it shouldn't be a problem for you.

yea but also i could risk one going after i do it if i dont torque them right.so its a possible lose lose situation.plus i havent heard that many problems out of the 6.4 side of the house about puking unless they are running the spartan high race tunes....and i dont plan on doing that.gonna get me a mini maxx and run a mild or hot tune.
