6.0 Head Studs?

A friend of mine rebuilding his motor on his 6.0 and a local performance Diesel shop is advising him to stick with the ford bolts instead of ARP head studs because of the clamping pressure they don't stretch even a little and if something fails you would rather it be a head gasket as opposed to warpage...

Is this sound advice? I told him I had never heard of anyone advising against the ARP head studs.

Never heard that either. If I had mine apart, ARP's are going back in!

That's absolutely the most STUPID thing I've heard in a long time. If that's what that shop thinks you need to stay FAR away from them. I guess all these companies selling bigger turbos for our trucks that state "Must have head studs to run this turbo" are just as stupid?

HAHAHA Run away...run far away. Pensacola Diesel is a huge parts shop, but they can't build injectors to save their own life.

The guys reasoning is if you pull and ruin threads in block that the block is then done

Can't see that happening unless the studs were installed and WAY over torqued, but that would turn them into stretched pieces of crap. Sure I've seen the odd guy run OEM head bolts with moderately high boost but more times then not it always ends in blown head gaskets. It's like Russia Roulette, it's not IF you'll blow your head off, but WHEN will you blow your head off.

I would never put factory bolts back in, Studs for any 6.0L doing head gaskets.
