I personally would not re-use the head bolts. Especially on a 6.0. IDk what the cheapest studs are but if your going to take the time to do it or pay someone to do it, have it done right and save yourself a head ache in the future.

Well that's a Cummins. You try and reuse TTY bolts and they will likely break. Or not clamp properly.

Unless you mean to go and just tighten them more... Which is just as bad because they are TTY. You'll almost definitely snap bolts.

TTY do not offer much give. They are designed for a certain torque spec, and single use

You are allowed to link any company you want as a consumer.

The "non supporting" company cannot come in and start linking to their own page to take customers.
Us average guys can link all we want!
