Getting Studs! and Questions

April 30th my trucks going into C&C diesel

Heads milled + valve job, Ford gaskets, Arp's, maybe HPOP while im in there.

What else should i do while its apart. The motors getting pulled btw, not the cab.

Im thinking injectors but im torn between doing them and just leaving it.

How beneficial is a Driven RR. they have one laying around in the shop. it wont cost me a dime in labor to get it installed during the hg job. or should i put an airdog on it myself when i get it back.

One of the things that I didn't do when I re-built my engine was replace injectors, given that I had already replaced a few of them previously. It ran great for a few thousand miles and an injector failed 80 miles from the nearest shop on a vacation road trip with kids and dogs. After towing and hassle factor, it became obvious that it would have been well worth it to replace the injectors while the engine was torn down. I subsequently put in the AD with the new injectors, they work well together, easy, smooth starting and a little more power.

I agree^^^. If you have the money to do it, might as well.

You could do the warren stock plus injectors for $500, and I would do the oil cooler while your they are in there for sure. Also I'm not sure how new your ice sensor is it that's a pita to get to

If you want bigger injectors do it, but don't just throw away money replacing stock injectors that work fine with stock injectors b/c "you have it apart." Would be a different story if there were signs of bad injectors but it is just a wast of money to replace something that works for some false expensive piece of mind.

Get some Warren 190s and a good turbo to match. Or just save you money to pay for the stud job. That's no fun though.

That's my plan. No reason to blow money on stock injectors.
