one of the first things you should get is some gauges.....then look into the programmer...but ive been running my truck with some tunes....for about 15,000 no head studs, and no problems yet...but i think it all depends on the truck....

Get gauges/monitor first to check the health of your motor before you start adding power. Read this before you go any further.
