ARP head studs for 6.4

I am wanting to know at what point does ARP head studs need to be used for preformance tunes that are more than mild tunes.

I am wanting to run tunes that are 750 rwhp and need advice on the use of ARP studs.

This is to improve MPG and not for street or road racing.

Thanks!
Ray

You will have to do more than tunes to get 750hp. But there is no set number for needing head studs. I blew mine running the H&S hotdamn tune.

Best 450 bucks I spent. Little to no smoke, which means its a very efficient tune. 200 for mcc, 250 for tunes

Very smooth, you can't tell when the tc locks unless you look at the tuner

The 6.4 already can handle 40PSI of boost, I am wanting to know what RWHP might start to lift the heads is my question if I was no clear in my earlier post! Sorry about that. I have heard studs are NOT needed for say up to 550 to 650 RWHP!

Thanks!
