6.4 bulletproofing

Hey everyone i gave a 6.4 and it has 130000 miles and i have dpf delete with a 5inch bladerunner exhaust and a afe intake and h&s xrt pro tuner. Now i want to run the "hot" tune with 250 hp as a normal running tune

(daily driver and just to run over so 6.6 duramaxs and some cummins without blowing gaskets and turbos but also no "pucking coolant and ruining the motor and melting my heads with the egt temps)

I already have the egr delete with a elbow and a set of arp headstuds. What else do i need to make my truck really fully bullet proof and fast and powerful and reliable!!!

Any help would be very appreciated!!!!:what

New coolant and maybe a coolant filter.

Possibly something like an AirDog or FASS.

Good fuel.

Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance.

I getting the coolant filter and egr delete with elbow but what else like headstuds and gaskets?!?

Also anything to heads or the rockers of and cam or the crankshaft?!

Also what about the turbos?!?! Any wastegate on the stock ones i really want just to put batrunner blaces in the stock turbo.


And do the intercooler

but what im saying is this to far?!?! Or is it just right?!?!

The head studs in these trucks hold up very well even with the big tunes. Depending in your plans a wastegate isn't necessary with just a daily driver with tuner, intake and exhaust. Maybe if you were racing or sled pulling a wastegate would be beneficial.

Correct. The 6.4 does not have the issues that the 6.0 had reguarding headgaskets. You will be fine with stock studs and gaskets if you stay with stock turbos. If you plan to do a batmo wheel or a full turbo swap then I would get studs. Coolant filter is a good idea. An airdog I also consider a very good investment. I have one and I love it. Its a piece of mind that the fuel is actually getting filtered, plus adds ease to filter changes.

I have them with me not on the truck

I'm planning to remove the cab and put on the studs and elbow. I have already ordered the coolant filter yesterday

But it looks like i will hold off on them until i put bigger turbos and injectors

I'd have to disagree on the 6.4 headbolts being strong...I've got stock turbos and need gaskets and studs with H&S running on wild. They might be better than the 6.0 but they aren't up to par for anuthing above stock power...I'd look up all the threads over "puking" before you decide to hold off on the studs.
