Same as your last post, you won't need studs for a while. Im hittin well over 40psi boost and hitting nitrous and not lifted yet. These trucks use a diffrent head stud than the 6.0 (m14 vs the m16(6.4)) There has been two that i know of to put studs in, just talked about it today with my buddy at Twisted Diesel, forgot what shop put em in. I didn't care enough to ask again or to find out who made the studs. There just not need right now.
