Head gasket failure

We'll a few weeks ago my head gasket started to fail on my 06.. The funny thing is that my truck is studded running a street tune, with 175/stock injectors.. And stock turbo. I don't have 11000 miles on my truck and never really got worked hard since studded.. Could this of been a flaw in my mechanics work? Or what

Re: Head gasket failure

possibly. Were the heads checked/milled? Valve work? What did he do for block prep? Did you use OEM head gaskets?

Re: Head gasket failure

Used Oem gaskets, heads were inspected and milled.. And block prep. Not sure.

Re: Head gasket failure

What exactly is happening to lead you to believe you lost the HG already?

Re: Head gasket failure

I am not trying to ask annoying questions but sometimes guys looks past very simple issues. In other words lots of guys jump to a HG failure the second coolant is lost which may not be the cause of the lost coolant. Did you delete your EGR when you did studs?

Some guys interchange head stud and head bolt by accident - two very different things. You bought aftermarket studs and supplied them to your mechanic or was this done at a dealer who would have just put in head bolts?

Re: Head gasket failure

I mean under boost coolant is coming out so bad from my cap that its dripping off my coil springs.. And it's only under boost cause you can hear it to. But yes we used arp head studs, Oem gaskets, and put an egr delete on.
