5k is a little high. We usually do studs,egr delete, coolant filter, oem head gaskets, all new top end gaskets, head machining and all for a little less than that.

Re: um studding truck?

Are your head gaskets actually blown?? If they are not, I would recommend just paying $400 for some studs and swapping them out yourself one at a time and torquing them down to spec. You would have to move some stuff around in the engine compartment but you could get er done with some time, patience, a good socket/wrench set, and a torque wrench. That would save A LOT right there.

Re: um studding truck?

Yes they can! As I mentioned above, you have to move some stuff out of the way like the heater core box on the passenger side of the firewall and you might have to "massage" the fire wall some because the bolts/tools MAY hit (I have heard of guys that didnt have any contact whatsoever); but either way, if pull a head bolt out and replace it with a stud that is torqued to spec, it most certainly can be done and there are plenty of folks running studs this way with great success. If I would have thought about it more when I did my head gasket job, I would have went this route to begin with. Ask Jeremy (lubeowner) about this and he can give you the skinny on it a little better probably. I would think this could save a few thousand for other and more important things

Re: um studding truck?

Man the best thing you can do is hook up a pressure gauge and drive the #### outta it. If heads lift even a little it will be a dead give away. That's what I did with mine. Coolant pressure never got over 13 lbs so I said #### it and took the chance. I torqued the piss out of the studs though.
