Head Studs & Head Gaskets $$ Or Sell the *****!

I have a 2005 6.0 with 112,000 miles on it. Its my baby. I've replaced the oil cooler as well as installed an egr delete kit. And now my head gaskets are on the verge of going out.. Should I sell it or should I risk putting another 700 bucks into it

If you think 700 for a fix is expensive how does this sound.....

$700 due on the 15th of every month for the next 48 months?

Makes paying it once a no brainer huh.

Yes, then I vote fix it if it's not paid off. It's no big deal after that sounds like you've done everything else.

If it's really your "baby" then I'm not quite sure why your contemplating selling it over a simple fix...Not like you gotta rebuild the bottom end. And with studs you get to push her even harder now....Think of it as an Upgrade, cuz really what's the difference
