problems after tuning?

Is anyone having any problems after tunes? Just curious if there are any weak links? Also if I run h&s will the egr blocker plates take care of my egr delete? I have herd these 6.4 are tough when modded im just curious about major problems. Thanks for the input ahead of time.

Head gaskets are prone to fail with bigger tunes. It's hit and miss, but it does happen more often than most think. The torque converter can become a weak link, along with the rest of the transmission, but it takes some serious abuse to break a stock 5R110. Trust me, I and many others have tried.

Cool I run h&s canned hot but I get on it some. I figure ill drive like I want and if something breaks ill replace it with the best I can afford. Are head bolts and gaskets pricey? Id do the work myself. Im almost(in a strange way ) looking forward to a cab off. It will give me a chance to add on if you know what I mean.

I think ARP head studs are around $500. Some places are cheaper than others on ARP studs. Usually depends on the volume they sell them. I'm sure Rudy's Diesel and Performance Truck Products both have them pretty cheap. You'll want to use Ford OEM gaskets when you do them. You can get all of what you need for that through a dealership or a site online that sells genuine Ford parts.
