head gaskets and studs

i blew a head gasket the other day and need to get new ones. i want to get really good ones w/out fire rings. also will i need new head studs? if so, what are good ones that are pretty cheap (i'm pretty much broke)? or will stock ones hold around 40 lbs.? i have the stock turbo but plan on putting a h2e in in the future. any help would be great w/ the gaskets and head studs. what are u guys running w/ big #'s using (stock everything or diff. gaskets and studs)? i also plan on putting bigger injectors in also. from here i will be going to the vendors for deals!! SO PLEASE HELP W/ IDEAS!!!!

Are you really hitting 40 psi? or are you talking after future mods? Stock headgaskets are usually just fine till 40 psi. If you wanted something better I would go with Cometic headgaskets. This is what we use on our pulling engines, and have yet to push one out. Cometics and ARP headstuds are not going to be cheap, but you will fix your problem. If you have any questions give us a call.

no right around 25 or 26, future around 40lbs. or so - maybe. but i'm pushing collant out of the tank. it only does it when i hit 25lbs. or so. i turn down the chip and fine and dandy. so now gotta figure out what to get to fix it. what are u running csipsd for gaskets and studs? i mean if are running stock, i should be more that fine with i have and what i plan to do.
-patrick how much are we talking for cometic gaskets and studs$? what are cometic gaskets anyways?
-farmboy what are we looking at for studs $?

Your normally good to about 40#'s boost on stock HG... I cant see why you would have popped other then the bully dog chip and stock turbo= HIGH DRIVE PRESSURE, and high Cylinder pressures...

Stock here, and I feel safe at my level...

Yup, Stock head bolts and gaskets...

If you do studs I would just put stock gaskets in there... No reason to go any further...

good thanks. now just to make sure - u mean aftermarket head studs, right. or do u mean replacing stock w/ stock. could i use the studs i have in it already? what other brands are there for head studs? i know arp but who else and what would u buy (need all the ideas i can get)? i will probably buy aftermarket head studs and stock gaskets. oh ya stock gaskets = ford or fel-pro. THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP!!!
