Head stud install before gaskets go bad
How much would it be to install (on average) studs before you have any gasket issues on our 6.4ls. I have a mini maxx, and I'm going to buy my exhaust and intake soon.
I'm only going to run stock power levels but all the stories of head gasket failure is scaring me. I drive my truck sensible, and don't want to hurt it.
I've read if you don't crank up the HP and don't hot rod the truck you'll been fine. I understand things break and go out but if i can prevent something from happening Im all for it. So how much would a pre head gasket failure stud install cost me?
