I am doing all of these things and more while i am in there... Not because this guy said so, but because from the research i have done it just makes good sense in the long run. It seems if you fix these engines before they fail it is allot cheaper.
Heck the heads alone are 3000.00, so not doing it is just asking to have your wallet ripped out again later.... Mine only has a oil cooler issue as of now but i am doing all of the things it needs while i am there: oil cooler, egr delete, drain tube, fuel spring kit, flush and coolant filter kit, head studs and VR/BO gaskets, snap connect fitting, and anything else that is known to internally fail while i am there.
I feel like looking at it as preventive maintenance, helps me (and wifey) to justify it better, and we wont be in another state on the side of the road with a load wishing i had another truck, and hopefully wont be scared to tow anymore like i am now.
So, pathfinder do as much as you can afford, cause i am thinking it is cheaper than the alternative... and with studs you never should have to worry about what tune you run and fuel economy will definitely increase, and the reduced stress on the mind alone may be worth the expense. Hope this helps.
