6.4 going under the knife sooner than I planned

Well, the top is popped off and ready for the arps to go in






The gasket finally went, to make a long story short.. So now arp studs are going in before I originally planned. Also one of my up pipes has a leak in it blowing soot on my firewall. My mechanic said to replace both up pipes would be $900 and he has some 6.0 manifolds he'd sell me for $100 laying in his shop. So the new manifolds and up pipes to match would be the same price as the stock up pipes. No brainier. Also I'm putting a new Down pipe on also. I'm waiting to hear about the heads from the machine shop to determine if I have enough for a batmowheel or not. I'm ready to get her back now!!!

Stock uppipes are about $180 per side fyi. Didnt know if you knew or not. Also Darkhorse Diesel sells heavy duty uppipes for $400-450.

Painful to see a 6.4 with the cab off

Its to bad about the heads. I plan on doing studs this summer

I might have heard wrong but someone was saying you could change the up pipes with the cab on.
Also seen in diesel power guys swapping studs with the cab on. Lot more work that way i bet but maybe possible to do in the garage with proper tools. Better that i have low km's too.

No kidding about the cha ching.. Might as well pull out a loan and build the whole engine with top notch parts if you plan on keeping the truck for a long time. What all do you plan on doing to it while its all apart? Dark horse diesel seems to be a pretty good shop, they make a badass ccv kit, custom made in house.

Planning on downpipe either mbrp or diamond eye stainless, new oil cooler while its apart, manifolds and up pipes, studs. That's prob it for now. I want to do a batmowheel but don't know if the funds will call for it, we'll see.. Oh and also my coolant filter that has been in my garage for a few months
