I used Victor Reinz Gaskets, How Screwed Am I?

Well like stated above, I used Victor Rienz Head Gaskets when I bulletproofed my 6.0. I read they were great gaskets so I went with them. I did the job as prevantive maintence and they hadnt gone out yet. I obviously used ARP studs and I also put an EGR delete in. I have 5,000 miles on them so far. Hoping for some good news.

Oh dude, you are so screwed. I would park the truck and not drive it any more until you can get those suckers changed over for oem head gaskets. If you can't do that then immediately take it to your dealer and trade it in while it is still running.







































OK, I'm just pulling your leg. If they were installed right, the heads and block decks are perfectly flat, they may hold up for you. Just keep an eye on them and if they go replace them with oem gaskets.

Ofically 12 months, and put on 40,000 miles since. My truck has broken down due to other problems, but not the VR gaskets. This time last year everyone and their grandma said good think about VR and BO. now the opposite (They suck dick) So I single handily blame the org for telling me to go VR. But I have no issues with mine, and keep tellin all the haters mine see -40 to plus 40 celcius drop over this last year and they still work

Yea black onyx were all the craze for about the first three years they were out but not so much anymore, I'm not sure if it's because of a cheaper manufacturing process or what.

I will say that any forum gets biased very quickly with inexperienced folks repeating what a few bad reviews they have read. IMHO they aren't what they used to be. Folks have done everything perfect and blown them anyway. So like anything else it's the luck of the draw

This is the exact same pep talk I give myself every time I get in my truck.
