Head studs and MORE

Okay ya'll I haven't posted on here for awhile other then I put my truck up for sale that now im taking off. I believe my heads are leaking so im going to be replacing them. While im at it I plan on doing a few other things.

apr head studs of course
3/8 push rods
60 hp injectors
airdog 165
oil cooler
psg ic pipe

Do you guys think I will need to do anything else for the injectors?

depends if you have a JOB 1 or not, i replaced a bunch of other crap that was upgraded or changed on the later jobs while the cab was off.

Degas bottle,
HPFP cover to incorporate the wire ties. See diesel power mags article on this one. Wires can short and cause the truck not to start.
Glow plugs also were changed when i did my head gaskets.
Radiator hoses to include the new two o-ring type
water pump
thermostats
intercooler boot upgrade

Be darn sure they check your heads. I found out after about 5k of driving that i have cracked heads and the thing has to be taken back apart. Luckily its under the guys warranty period so it should only cost me the heads this time.

Personally i would look into air upgrades. These trucks are already overfueled stock. I personally would look into a ported intake manifold and 6.0 exhaust manifolds and up pipes. Possible even a LP batmowheel. I think 60 hp nozzles will be overworking the stock HPFP. If you do injectors you probably should look into duel fuelers. Just my 2 cents.

Holding FRP on 60s is hit or miss on stock hpfp so you may not hold FRP, most dont. I would also agree with the post above, I would do air before fuel.

Like others have stated, I would wait on the injectors and do air upgrades (turbo, intercooler pipe, intake elbow, etc.).

i wish i could have waited on injectors mine had 6 of 8 low flow at 80K miles. Sucks, glad to hear someone has made it last more traditional life.

I think my problem was overcleaning the fuel system. Used stanadyne and optilube every tank from 40K to 80k miles. Now my fuel system is squeaky clean at the expence of my injectors.

I think he was stating that his fuel system was probably dirty and that the fuel conditioner cleaned everything up, hence the dirtyness had to go somewhere and the injector tips is where it ended up.

Yep that's what I was told. I am not sure how the system got dirty. I changed the filters at 5-7k and drained the water sep every other tank. That's what I get for trying to be proactive.
