Re: Should I custom tune with head bolts?
Yeah I am fully aware that eventually everything man made fails. Especially when pushed to the limit of its design. Thats the reason for saving up for the work that will be done early next year. I count myself as a luck guy, I am the second owner of a 03 texas truck that was used for quick trips to the feed store. It was bone stock and when I got it had only 23K on the clock. It now has 150K nearly trouble free miles (had 2 injectors go at 140K). I attribute the longevity of the motor to maintenance and having a solid head on my shoulders. However I have come to the point where as all guys do I want more power. Not trying to race it or pull it or anything just want to be able to give the kids a holy crap moment you know where they get pushed back in the seat and suprise a mustang or two. I figured through long hours researching and asking the right questions, that tunning and a few other goodies will give me what I am looking for. I am going to go with the SCT X4 and then get a good custom tune after some phone calls to BRP that is reasonably safe for a non studded truck, untill I get the work done. After that from what I gather the ringed and studded heads will hold dang near anything.

I dont walk this way because of the wounds I have suffered in the line of duty, but because my balls are just that big!
