Good point. Might as well make it bulletproof right off the start I suppose. With that low of miles is it crucial that I get the heads checked out? Since I will have it that far apart I will probably clean the turbo out also, would it be smart to rebuild it? I have no idea who the other owners are or how they drove it so I'm not sure how it was driven.
I would get the heads checked out (decked and magnafluxed if they aren't cracked). I have an 04 and took my truck in to get studs put in it (before anything was wrong). When they took the heads to the machines shop we found out both heads were cracked. It sucked that I had to put new heads on it but I would have been even more upset had I put studs in it and then had problems. The guy at the machine shop said it is about 50/50 whether or not the heads are cracked on an 04 (at least the ones they get in).
