So, I will be pulling the engine in March to replace the oilpan and while it's out do the rear main,front seal,valve cover harness and hopefully the turbo, hpop and injectors.money permitting.
Now the question I have is , should I install head studs while it's out? The motor has 200k on it and it will never produce more than about 400 hp. I know the failure rate of the HG on the 7.3 is nowhere near what it is on the 6.0, but what is the failure point? At what level of boost are they letting go? I doubt I'll ever get to 40psi, but I only want to have it apart once. Oh and the engine is an early model with the good rods.
If I do head studs , that means no injectors for sure.
Thanks for the info.
