When to do headstuds?

Ok, I'm sure this topic has at some point been covered in every way possible but still I feel I must get more opinions. I am looking to do stage 2 injectors, a D66 turbo, and an adrenaline HPOP. A decent power increase, but nothing crazy. I already have a TS 6 pos. which will get sent to Tony when the time comes, but I really want to know that with these desired mods, will I need to do headstuds? I just had my truck at Dynomite Diesel Performance in Monroe, about 20-30 mins away from my place and the (very very cool and helpful) guys there were saying its a must with stage 2's and a big turbo. I have heard many times it is very very unnecessary to do until you run a very large turbo with hybrids/ B-codes. Anyone got their .02 on this?

If it were me, I would stick headstuds in there anywhere close to 40 psi of boost. They are not to hard to install in the truck too... we have done a few trucks over here..

See that is what I always thought too. But with the stage 2's and a D66 would I even hit 40 psi? Are they really not hard? I don't have the facility to do them myself, maybe the mechanical skill level, but no where to do it, and its a spendy job to pay someone for...

either the Beans or swamps, something close to 160cc or 175cc, I'd like to do single shots.

You'd be foolish not to do single shots, if you're swapin injectors.

And you'd be ok without studs with either injector, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to have 'em in there.

IMO valve sprngs would be a better purchase at this stage.

Yeah the single shots are a must. Valve springs are also a good call. I would love to do the headstuds, and someday I'm sure I will, as soon as I either have the shop availability and or money for it. So from what I have heard/ know now, its sounding like going for the single shot stage 2's and the D66 as well as some springs would be a good move? The HPOP would probably be nice as well, such as the adrenaline? Sound about right or am I leaving out a key component? Since I already have the TS I just gotta get it tuned for that setup.

I have the set up your wanting to do. i only hit about 35 psi at WOT. and if you do head studs and dont need to replace the head gasket you can just pull one bolt, and replace it with a stud

and if you want help with the injectors, HPOP or D66 from a guy who has done them hit me up. after April i will be stationed up in Everett.
