Finally studded and worry free!

Bought the truck over 2 years ago with intention of studding it right away but never did till I had to.. Lol. Of coarse it started puking the day after all my egr delete/oil cooler parts came in. So I did the delete and cooler hoping it was just the egr cooler but it was still good. So hooked a gauge to cooling system and head gaskets were blown. I didn't feel like doing them myself so dropped it off wednsday night and it was done Friday afternoon! Talk about quick!! Now im good to go!

Gryphon FICM Programer
IPR Gen2 EGR Delete
ARP Headstuds with OEM Gaskets
Sinister Coolant Filter and ELC
Redhead Steering Box

And the wish list keeps getting bigger!!

Seems like a quick turn around for a stud job. Did they send the heads out to be checked at a machine shop?

Yea I would make sure the heads were done lots of shops jerk off the heads, slap on some gaskets, clean up the heads, and button it back up. Not a good idea.

Not sure how this shop did it. But, Rudy's keeps a few sets of reworked/checked heads on hand and uses those to minimize downtime. This keeps trucks moving on through...

Haha. Well less worry free! I made sure they were sent to a machine shop. When I asked how long he said depends on how busy the machine shop is. He does around 5 of these jobs a month so he's got it down. That's why I brought it there.
