Are you going to do head studs?

Head studs are cheap insurance in my opinion. It's your truck though.

how many miles on the the truck?

from what i hear, 6.4s rarely blow headgaskets but studs are good insurance.... if you're gonna run a really hot tune it might be a good idea

if you're going for studs since your already there i'd put in a high pressure pump gasket and reseal the injectors too. otherwise i wouldn't dig too deep looking for problems. depending on the mileage i'd give the rocker arms a good look too

also if you've never worked on a 6.4 you're in for a real treat

I wouldnt bother with studs unless your gonna be running race tunes which i doubt since its an F550. I highly recommend the Spartan 210 tow tune also..

Ford F250 6.4 CC/SB, Spartan 350 w/TCM, Mag-Hytec deep pan, Flo-Pro 5 inch Exhaust, AFE stage 2 with ProDRy, 2.5 Readylift, ZEX Nitrous single stage, BD CAC pipe, ATS 5-star converter, elite egr delete/wastegate, ts mp-8 stacked, Procomp traction bars, locker, CFM plenum, ARP studs. Innovative tunes and Suncoast on the way!

On a 550, I would pop off the water pump while in there and check for cavitation.

good advice there! i completely forgot the 450s and 550s are much more prone to cavitating the front covers. it is very easy to pull the water pump. definitely have a look behind there and post a pic too so we can see what it's looking like
