another head gasket ?

Hey everyone i'm going to be doing head gaskets on my early build 04. Of course i want to stud it. What do i need besides studs, head gaskets, oil cooler rebuild. I'm going to just put a plug on each end of my EGR cooler to block it off, i don't see the reason to spend all the money on the whole delete kit. I've looked around on here and it always seems like everyone is going to the max when the do this, or its for the later built model engines.so any help would be amazing(i'll be doing all the work myself thinking i'm going to lift the cab off the truck)

there are a bunch of things to do when tackling this job, especially cab off... options are endless really. Whats your budget, and honestly it is worth it (at least to me) to get the whole delete kit. Not knowing what mods you have on the truck already this is what i would do in your situation

check for flatness on the heads
ARP studs
20mm black onyx headgaskets
sinister egr delete
oil cooler rebuild
6.4 banjo bolts
custom tuned SCT
PHP FICM flash
4 inch turboback exhaust

then again i dont know what your budget is, but thats the minimum I would do

if you check out MKM customs they have a complete 6.0 solutions package that has everything that list except the banjo bolts, SCT, ficm flash, and exhaust

well to me its not worth it(delete kit), and i dont believe there more parts in doing a cab off now is there? i usually don't break things when i work on them so my plan is not to change that lol. I'm just staying with a tune.(i haul over 10,000lbs on a regular basis)

As far as the delete goes yes you can block the cooler off but I personally don't see any reason to keep inoperative parts on my truck (or any of my vehicles for that matter). If it isn't doing anything I like to make it go away. I have seen very nice deletes for as little as $150. I paid $275 for my Sinister kit and am happy with the purchase.

If you can weld you can just weld up the intake ala FCDP and still do your own delete on the cheap.

They remove the check valves that come in the 6.0 banjo bolts......they open up the fuel system going into the heads.
