To STUD?

We have a thread on here where a member was asking if he should stud his rig or not.
This is my 3rd set of gaskets and second set of heads. This was the first on my studs and I don't race my rig anymore.
My new diesel TECHS friends are awesome and think the jackazz that did my last set didn't put them on clean and also noticed the torque was not even close.
I'll steal a quote from another member - stud or sell.

Yeah these guys are AWESOME. They just stepped out and started their own shop. I'll post the shop up soon, they are REALLY starting up. Master diesel Techs, AWESOME guys and I don't want to overload them with business until they are fully ready to go. Houston and all of Texas is going to have a GREAT diesel shop to have work done.

Oh and an ETA - those that think Amsoil is snake oil (my buddy Tim ) they said the inside of my motor looked AMAZING. Come to the dark side Tim, Granny will love you for it.

Amsoil works great as long as you dont try to go for 25k mile oil changes

Dave you're ALWAYS the smart azz.
No I change WAY too soon and yeah it cost me but it works.

ETA - my fault for getting us WAY off target as usual. We don't need ANOTHER 100 amsoil debates on here.

Back on target, I would vote for having a Technician you trust stud your rig. That damn hole looks like a .38 was shot through it. Y'all should have seen me when it went. I'll post a video of what happens while your driving and it goes when I get back to work. Not fun.

I go 5-7k on mine. I gave up on Amsoil since I can get Schaeffers for half the money.
