oil cooler or head studs

i bought a 06 ps and found it had a egr delete that the guy i got it from didnt know it had im guessing because he didnt tell me so after i found that i was wondering if it already has a oil cooler or head studs done. So my question?

1.Is there a way to found out if it has is stuff already done?
i didnt know if i could pull a valve cover and see if the head bolts have been off or if arp studs have a marking on the end and dont know about the cooler


Any help would be greatly appreciated before i go spend a grand on parts it already has.

Unless you tear your motor down you won't be able to tell about the oil cooler. A device like a edge insight will tell you how efficient your oil cooler is depending on ECT and EOT deltas.

Now I don't have studs on my truck but they look different then bolts. Look at the outside of the passenger side head. There will be a few exposed bolts.

This is what a stud looks like (stole pic from someone on the org)
