My build

Ok guys truck and mods are in my sig. It has 116,000 miles. I am taking it tomorrow to get a few things done.
OEM Rockers
OEM pushrods
updated radiator hoses
t-stats
both idler pulleys and belt tensioners
71mm LP turbo
6.0 exhaust manifolds
Rudy's up pipes
ported intake manifold

I know people are going to ask me about studs. I thought long and hard about it. I decided to wait to do studs until I have problems. When I have problems I will do studs and gaskets and have the heads magnafluxed and decked. I figured if it ain't broke don't fix it lol. There was a thread on the army about people cracking their block after doing studs. I didn't want to push my luck.

I assume you're having the cab pulled for all this work. If so, I'd say definitely put studs in.

If I remember correctly, ARP changed their lube and torque specs to prevent cracking that occurred with the old lube. I wouldn't worry about it.

You're going to have a hell of a truck once it's done!

i am eager to see what it does, so i can compare mine with yours. mine has essentially the same mods, but please stud it, you dont want to pull the cab off twice if you dont need to.
