"How to blow my headgaskets" tips

Hey Powerstrokers,

Never thought I'd ask this, but here goes the scenario:

I found a dealership I do business with, right up the street, that will take care of the headstud install under warranty with no questions asked. Problem is that I don't have blown headgaskets. I have the current mods in my sig and my truck has been running absolutely beautiful. Any advice on how to help me hurt my stock bolts without causing any other major damage? Thanks in advance!

Hook up to something heavy and tow it on the looney file. Don't be easy and they will go.

Whoa!!! Can't you just float the service manager or the tech a little something on the side to push it through under warranty? I'd check that route before I went tearing up my truck on purpose. If you do the studs proactively then you can be assured that your heads and deck are still in spec... Why risk cracking or warping the heads???

+1 here on that. 10K lbs and keep it punched going up a hill till they pop. Only problem is that Ford might send an inspector out or request pics of the pistons. If the pistons have star patterns on them and more than likely your warranty claim will be DENIED. The programmer will cause star marks on the pistons if you didn't know but I have seen unprogrammed trucks with the star pattern but they are heavy haulers.
