6.4 batmowheel with factory bolts?

I am considering putting both batmowheels in my 6.4. Do you all think that the factory headbolts could handle the extra PSI in boost created? Ive been reading many threads about 6.4 headbolts and i have seen both opinions stated, but most seem to say that the 6.4 headbolts are pretty good unless adding nitrous or something crazy like that.... Whats your opinion???

I think there is only one for the low pressure side.

I am also wanting to put batmowheels in my turbos. I am hoping to do it this fall or next spring along with a ported intake manifold. I am still on stock headbolts.

IF it was ME and since i was all ready messing with the motor i would just go ahead and put APR head bolts on. You want have to switch gaskets so it will make it easier. Better to do it now with the gaskets good then wait tell you blow one and have to pull a head which would make it a WITCH

Pay now or pay later. You will eventually need studs running high horse power tunes. I would do studs if the cab is coming off.
