Warranty runs out this month

So my truck is at the dealership to get some last minute love and attention. I have noticed the difference in my ECT and EOT getting wider and some slow coolant loss as well so I thought I would have them look at the oil cooler and EGR cooler. While talking to the SM I mentioned that I was worried about the head gaskets since it is about to go out of warranty and that I would really like to have them changed and and ARP studs installed. He surprised me by saying "pay to have the cab taken off and we'll take care of it". So it's getting studs and gaskets too. Since it will essentially be out of warranty when they get through with it I will see if I can get the tech to install my EGR delete while it's apart, or at least let me install the manifold stuff so I don't have to pull it down again. Either way it'll have a new oil cooler, EGR Delete, and head studs by the end of the week. Then it'll be time to turn up the tunes. I wish I could afford to put a set of 175cc injectors in while it's down but I just had my roof replaced and new windows put in the house and funds are a little tight right now. Anyhow, I'm stoked to be getting it studded finally.

how much did they charge you to R&R the cab?

That's pretty good gravy for a guy working on it.

BigRob If you are anywhere around Baltimore Md shoot me a PM. I don't want to post the dealership name in open forum but they are a mod friendly dealer ;-)

Hillbilly, I don't want to post a price in the open either but it is way, way cheaper than any other deals I've heard of.

I talked to the tech that will be doing the work today and while he is in there he said he would install my EGR Delete kit so we are good to go. He said he does a lot of EGR bypasses when he does head gaskets and such and does stuff like that on the side too so he is comfortable with it. Damn I wish I could afford injectors lol.
