I don't have stock head bolts. I have Elite 1722-A head studs by A1 Technologies.
I think stock head bolts are fine up to our 210 tune, but above that is hit or miss. I rarely hear of blown head gaskets with our 250 tune, but it has happened. The 275, 300, 310, and 350 tunes can all aide in blowing head gaskets. Your right foot will determine if and when it happens typically.
I recommend studding any truck that is going to be daily driven at north of 500 RWHP. I also recommend deleting the EGR coolers and adding a free flowing intercooler pipe and intake elbow. You'll be happy you did all of this once it's done.
