After studs

So my truck goes in next week for new head gaskets ans studs. I'm also doing down pipe and egr delete. I have a mini max and dpf delete. What can I expect after the studs? Can I safely run all the power the mini max can offer me? The truck is my daily driver and I just want to drive it normal and play some.
Is there anything else I need to do while cab is off? I know about the wires under the intake and injector o rings but what else?

If you're having the cab off (and have the cash), better up-pipes wouldn't be a bad idea. The stock ones are prone to failure.

Take a good look at the rockers and pushrods while you've got the heads off. I hear the rockers wear out fairly easily.

Up pipes

I just ordered HD up pipes from Rudy's. I will make sure they check rocker arms when it is apart.

I along with hundreds of others run the highest tune everyday on factory head bolts with no problems. These motors are tough

2010 CC/SB FX4 Lariat.. Tuned By Eric@IDP and Matt@Gearhead

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying

If you have the funds maybe look into a ported intake manifold.

better airflow, cooler egt's, quicker spool up and possible a little more power.

Just remember, the engine will take everything you throw at it ...until something breaks from the stress. Just like any race or high output engine, it will break if being pushed beyond it's design specs. Unless you go through the bottom end, fuel system, and valvetrain with upgraded components, I would be worried about running it at full steam all the time.

Who knows though...
