head studs

  1. California Members
    Hi, I was seeing if anyone can recommend a decent shop/independent mechanic in the Central Valley of California. I'm considering purchasing a one-owner 2006 F-250 FX4 with 127k miles. It's bone stock and I intend on bulletproofing shortly after buying. I'm very aware of the bulletproofing...

    I am looking at adding the Banks Speedbrake to my 6.0, Banks Power says I have to use a tuner with it, my mechanic says if I add a turner I will be paying him $7000 to replace my head studs and gasket when the tow truck brings it in. I don't really want the tuner, I have enough go power, I...
  4. 6.0 Motor problems
    Well it finally happened. While going out to Utah to see a friends I lost a head gasket. Its about a 8 hour drive from my house to his and about 5-6 hours into it I stopped to fuel up and notice large bubbles coming up to the degas bottle. I taped a rubber glove to the degas bottle and it blew...

    Ok so ive had the truck for a few months now. Its my first 6.0 but I've been around these trucks for a long time. Every time I've seen a bad head gasket there was coolant overflow. I don't have any issues with coolant pressure and my coolant is completely to the full level. But I have oil...
  6. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Hi all. I'm about to dig into my passenger side #5 of my 2003 to look for push-rod/rocker problems that I believe has led to losing compression through the intake following HG repair. Once I do loosen that head stud, assuming I do find the issue and don't have to pull the head, my preference...

    After much debate and a lot of reading i decided to purchase the spartan tuner, 5" dp back straight pipe and S&B intake (plastic cover is coming off) my question is, has anyone had head problems running this combo, and if so is there a head stud kit being offered that i dont know about?

    I just bought a 2004 6.0 with 128,000 miles. It came with a K&N intake on it already and recently I put on a 4" straight pipe (turbo back). I want to do the EGR delete so I just purchased the Sinister Diesel kit. My questions is what else do I need to make my truck reliable and ready for a tune...

  11. 6.4L Performance Parts Discussion
    I am considering putting both batmowheels in my 6.4. Do you all think that the factory headbolts could handle the extra PSI in boost created? Ive been reading many threads about 6.4 headbolts and i have seen both opinions stated, but most seem to say that the 6.4 headbolts are pretty good...
  12. 6.0L Problems Forum
    Ok I have a 2004 6.0 and coolant is coming out of the cap. Generally I would think head gasket issue since the truck has had the egr deleted but no coolant in oil?????? Not sure what the problem is or what else could be causing this. Also sometimes the truck runs a little rough like its kind of...
  13. 6.0 Motor problems
    So I used the block chek today to determine if my head gaskets were blown.... Lucky me, it appears they are! :doh: Only 80K on the ol gal. I called a local powerstroke shop who informed me I would most likely need new heads since 90% of the ones they have seen are cracked, they can't mill them...

    I bought an 03 in the beginning of Sept with a plan to do some work on it to make it go a long time and be fun to drive. There is a fellow here that I know who does diesel work on the side in a shop at his house so I made arrangements to have him do it. I was looking forward to helping him after...
