will have to wait for a tech to answer that one. What happened that they are replacing the long block? I would assume they would be using your old injectors, HPOP, Oil Cooler, EGR cooler and intake, valve body plate, oil rails and valve covers, or they might as well have put a whole new motor in. :dunno:
are you referring to ARP studs? if so then that would depend on the dealer doing the work, i would bet he could have the tech install them while its all apart. and the studs go into the block, the heads slide over the studs and are bolted down to the block.
Thanks for the response, was hoping to get new injectors as several have had to be replaced in the past, as for the studs I did not ask for them. I am going to wait until after warr. is up then have this motor built right so there are no future problems. Ford makes a nice truck, but ford does not build engines...as we all know!
