Getting studded finally

Well, I brought my truck to get the whole package done. Studs, head gaskets, EGR delete, oil cooler, STC fitting and some other things I can't remember right now. I wasn't having any problems other than my EGR cooler was showing signs of being bad. I figured that I may as well stud it while it's open. Save on some labor down the road. Do y'all think that was a wise decision?

Since you we already going to have your oil cooler replaced and stc, etc done its not a bad idea. The only reason I studded mine is because the motor was already out for a bed plate leak. You'll save some on labor not doing this two different times. How long is it going to take and any plans on what tune you want to run after it's all said and done?

Good Idea to do it now.
I did my oil cooler/Egr delete one time and really wanted my truck back so I skipped the HG... 3 months later I had blown HG
Then I went back in all the way to do the work over again!

I should have it back Thursday or Friday. I'm going with Vivian's tunes. I'm going to try out the Looney Fuel and Looney Wild first, I'm sure I'll try a few other tune writers also to see the difference.
