Head Studs do's and donts.

Im am getting studs put in my truck in about two weeks. Is there anything I need to do,or dont do, after I get my truck back. Break-in period or what not? I tried the search function but did not get much back on my question. Thanks!!!!


I have a AFE cold air intake, 4 inch turbo back exhaust with the kitty delete and a SCT tuner with just the canned tunes. Quadzilla guages.

There is no break in period persay..... but there is an adjustment period. if you get what I mean.

If you take apart any eng you are re-arranging the wear items even if you number and mark the connection points.

When you take parts off and put them back on They are not going to be in the """EXACT"""" ORIGINAL positions. So when you do head studs the parts will be off slightly and there will be a "break in period", "adjustment period"

I would take it very easy with the truck. Let it warm up be fore you drive off, cool down, drive easy, change the oil earlier than normal. I would go back to stock for the first 100 miles. And switch to standard oil if your not running that now. dello, rotella, ford, 15W40. Change it every 5k or earlier.

It can handle more than your stock turbo can put out smartass, there's a difference in the 6.0 and 7.3, you have a 7.3, this was a 6.0 thread.
