"High" km's on stock head gaskets?
My truck has 286,000kms and to my knowledge, the engine is stock. I am currently having no issues with puking, smoking, etc (knock on wood) but have been considering doing studs, oem gaskets, and a bullet proof EGR to put my mind at ease and to reduce needing new heads when/if the head gaskets blow.
Is there any way to tell if any of this work has been done already? I bought the truck used and there is no records of anything in the glove box or anything so I am assuming not. I will be doing the job my self in my shop with the cab on.
Reason for asking is every thread I read, people are needing replacing within 100,000kms or even miles, just wondering if there is a good batch of 6.0's out there?
