Getting ready for head studs. What else do I need?
Just starting to gather the stuff I need to do the head studs. I am losing a little coolant somewhere other than the degas bottle, so it must be time for studs (168k so far on original stock stuff).
I just need to know what other orings, gaskets, misc crap I would need.
So far I have:
1. Built a garage to do this in.
2. Oil cooler kit
3. Coolant filter ready to go in
4. EGR delete already done.
Things I plan on purchasing before I start:
1. ARP head studs
2. VR head gaskets
3. STC fitting
4. HPOP screen
5. Injector orings
6. Bendpak XPR-10acx
7. Glow plugs
What else should I do while I am in there? I am in no hurry to do this and I don't have to drive it , even though I love driving it. The 2 post lift is next on my big purchase list, followed by the truck parts.
