Hey, I have been trying to avoid studding my engine, because I don't have the money. I have been laying off the tunes as well. So my question is this, what can you boost the engine to before stretching the head bolts, what is max PSI on stock bolts? I see high boost pressures when towing with no tunes and it worries me a little.
MAN I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO TELL YOU OTHER THAN GET IT STUDED!
I DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE EVEN HOOKING ON TO MY TRAILER AND HAULING IT ANY WHERE. IF YOUR STILL UNDER WARRANTY YOU MIGHT AS WELL TRY TO BLOW A HEAD GASKET AND THE ONCE YOU TAKE IT IN HAVE THEM STUD IT FOR A LITTLE MORE + THE STUDS!!!!!!!!!!!
