Head stud kit help

I'm looking at get my 03 F250 studded as well as egr delete and oil cooler replaced. Mkmcustoms sells a kit with the following
Sinister diesel egr delete
Ford eom gaskets
Apr head stud
Oil cooler with screen
Intake and exhaust gaskets

Is there a better kit? The shop I went to wants 1500 for the kit but doesn't come with egr or oil cool which will run additional 700$

Any input is greatly appreciated will respond to posts ASAP

Is it a good buy though? Just want to make sure it's not junk. The shop I get my work done at said it's not good and could be problematic. (Referring to the her and oil cooler)

Re: Head stud kit help

Could be problematic? Where is it you are located?

I would look into a IPR2 egr delete kit, they are pretty nifty. Also if you are planning to do performance mods down the road Windrunner408 can hook you up on a sweet deal for a ported intake which wouldn't require a EGR delete kit.

Just a option

I will look into it. What are the differences between them? As far as mods go I'm just looking to throw a programmer on it and be done. I haul gym equipment more than anything so I'm not looking for insane tow capacity. Just want to make a reliable engine with good fuel economy and power that will last me a long time. I don't get on the gas pedal unless I'm merging on the highway.

Re: Head stud kit help

I'll admit that I'm not actually a fan of kits like that. It's a GREAT way to get what you need but you also can get a lot you don't need. That one seemed pretty sweet. Case in point is an EGR delete. There are SO many ways to delete the EGR cooler it's crazy and I don't like even getting rid of the valve because the ECM will sometimes freak out when it doesnt see the signal from the EGR valve not being plugged in on certain applications.

Another thing to think about is getting HD bellows for your up/Y-pipes since you're already in that far.

Again, I thank Jake for the kind words, but I can't post anything here other than contact me if you'd like information and I'll do what I can to help you. Best of luck for sure here. It's not an impossible job at all. It just takes time.
