bought a 2005 f350 back in september with 44k on it. when I bought it the dealer couldnt supply an OASIS because the system was down, but I couldnt pass up the deal I was getting so I bought it. well 5 months and 15k problem free miles later I decided to get an OASIS report. Coming to find out 2months and 1k miles before I bought it the EGR cooler, oil cooler, headgaskets, and other odds and ends were done!!! YIPPIE. so this weekend I will be doing ELC swap and coolant filter. My delta is about 2 degrees so its not too late. Can someone tell me by looking at the report why there is no line item for studs? can they reuse the factory ones? by looking at the the front left drivers side stud I can tell they arent ARP is there another brand that the orginal owner could have had them install?
Most likely you have Ford head bolts again, not studs.
Correct. If it is a straight up warranty job it will get the oem TTY head bolts. Some shops will use ARP studs if you supply them but many shops won't on a warranty repair.
Don't sweat it. Get it switched over to ELC and delete the egr cooler if you can. Even if you can't delete the egr cooler just switching to ELC will most likely keep you from having future head gasket issues.
