There is no need to retorque the studs. Just put the cab on and drive it for a while and keep an eye on things such as oil and water temp and fluid levels.

Re: Studded 6.0 Torque???

It isn't a necessity but if you have the time... I would break each nut loose, one at a time, and retorque in the original sequence. Then heat cycle it at least once then when it is stone cold again go back and re torque with out breaking loose. This whole crap about the fastners holding the head down having become a non serviceable item is crap. Studs rule, don't be afraid to retorque.

Re: Studded 6.0 Torque???

...Besides you should be using the torque angle method, which is based on turns of the nuts, not actual torque because it can be inaccurate.

Where on the instructions in the box of studs does it say to turn them in degrees?

Inaccurate would be your post.

For factory head bolts, yes.

For aftermarket head studs, no.

Re: Studded 6.0 Torque???

The torque angle is the ONLY way that I got my heads to seal w/ studs over 525hp, we did them 3 times and the last time we used the torque angle method and it held and no other changes were made, BDP did it and I believe this is how they install their studs now. My had no issues after the last install and did 587/1200.

Re: Studded 6.0 Torque???

Jeremy, that worked once..Not saying it wont work again, but has Beans started to use this method on all 6.0's that come in the shop for studs? Also you only had your truck back for 3 months (estimate) with no puking, which IMO isn't a real big feat, now if you were talking years, then that would be another story with some good backing. This isn't any disrespect to your or Beans, I am just making a statement. The truck at hand is also gone now too..

Well seeing how ALL things were constant in 3 tries set-up,installer,tuning everything and the other sets didn't hold more than a week or two, I would say it fixed it. I am not sure why you feel so strongly against it you and a couple others seem to have a issue w/ anything that is different than ARP says, and the FACT of it is we tried their way twice and 0 success. BDP tried alittle out of the box thinking and came up w/ a way that was between the stock torque angle method and what the Fastner companies wanted, and it worked.
