I've been reading about folks swapping out the 6.0 bolts for the 6.4 bolts, but I think most of the feedback has been similar to the Zoodad mod: couldn't really tell a difference but it can't hurt.

I'd recommend NOT drilling out the factory bolts. Used to be a popular mod a couple of years ago, but drilling them out compromises the structural integrity of the bolt and that's not something you want to break when you try to take it out later.

Yea drilling don't sound too appealing. I found some "upgraded bolts" on ebay for $25. I called the dealer and the 6.4 bolts are $26 a piece!

I would think it would be a good idea if you have a HOT tune.

I have a 7.3 and removed my check valves a long time ago and it starts right up. They dont really do much for our trucks. I assume the 6oh would be similar.

That is good. I was not sure if it would effect start ups on the 6.0
