6.4 head studs help?

I'm having studs and gaskets put in my 09, and I'm looking for help on where to get the complete kit from. I want all the gaskets I'll need to replace them.
Any suggestions?

Thanks

It looks like I would save a little money getting the gasket kit and arp studs, instead of getting the whole package

I was just going to get the gasket and stud kit but I'm going to have all the gaskets replace when I take it apart, I don't like reusing gaskets and seals, and I've heard to buy all the gasket and seals I'll need from ford, I would end up having about $2,100 in it after getting studs and gaskets.

If you are replacing all the gaskets then the first 2 links I posted will help you. I would shop around though and try to save a few bucks

Only buy OEM head gaskets. Search around a little on this forum and you'll see that OEM is the only way to go. I just got studs done under warranty and I only had to buy the studs, not gaskets since Ford was taking care of those.

I bought my studs from Amazon.com.

How much does a set of ome gaskets usually run, I found the arp studs for a pretty good deal? I just want my truck to be dependable without having to work on it every months. Already deleted the egr and dpf/cat

I just did mine this past weekend and I ordered the Victor gaskets but also ordered the OEM head gaskets, I used the victor gaskets except the head gaskets, those stayed in the box. I can also tell you that if someone tells you that the Victor gaskets are the same as the OEM don't believe it, they are not the same at all, other than they are both gaskets.
