studing with changing gaskets risk?

Hey guys i called swamps diesel a few days ago and they gave me a quote for 1300 do to studs in my truck. They said they do it with the cab on and dont touch the gaskets. My trucks is not puking and hasnt yet. Knock on wood. So its the risk of just putting studs in without replacing the gaskets? Thanks for the help guys

The gasket isn't really the problem--as I understand it, the stretching of the stock studs causes the HG to blow. Changing the studs takes care of that problem. Are you doing anything about the EGR?

How many miles are on your truck?

I wouldn't do the studs this way just for the main reason that my truck didn't puke a drop in 99,000 miles, but when I pulled the cab and the heads to have them checked, the heads were warpped pretty bad. I would just save up another grand and pull the cab to do the gaskets and studs correctly. Just my $.02

there is a good answer..

Brad, just because it isn't puking right this minute, does not mean that tomorrow or the end of next week or month it wont start (god forbid) and say if you got the studs installed Friday and it started puking Saturday (for illustration purposes only) you just wasted $850 bucks give or take, depending on what they charge for the actual studs.

Take the advice above, save the 1300 bucks and do it right the first time.

Better to have it done right the first time. It only cost 2800-3k for it to be done right with the heads being fluxed/decked and new gasket. Just save up for it. I dont believe in doing things half *** but thats just me.

If you go through the effort to do the studs, get the heads decked and replace the gasket. The gasket has been refined over the years and the factory machining of the heads is worse than awful.
