Question work to the heads price

OK im wasting 2700 on head studs and a gasket and oil cooler kit and waste gate, now how much is the heads going to go get milled, pressure tested, manafluxed, and a valve job done? Also I'm wondering if injectors are going to need to be replaced, do I need to get them replaced? I loved the power of my truck, but now I'm caught with money? Any advice?

How about you just let the truck sit for awhile while you save up? Buy a real cheap beater (I'm talking 2-3 grand) and then sell it for about the same once you have the money for the truck.

Maybe, but over here its even hard just to find a decent price, I'm trying to find one, maybe hit the old 5.9 Cummins and see if I can get her started, she has big problems as well too. I just don't get it though, of I get my *** to do everything possible, and try to stay on top, but yet kids who fail, and don't even have jobs get 2013 dodges, 2013 fords, and 2013 Chevys. Even my sister has a 2013 mini cooper with 2miles when bought(which by the way is faster than my truck). And I'm blessed with a 2008 ford, wrecked, blown turbos, human **** in the back seat, and all worn tires. I got this truck in the best shape, I worked my *** off, it just sucks that it wanted to shut down right now.... the work truck(2011 Toyota tundra) has some balls though!!!! This thing is stout!!!!

Is there another thread about this that I missed? Is it a Job1 08? If it is, you might want to replace the injectors. Are you adding fuel or air? You could have saved a couple hundred on the wastegate if you arent

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying
