headgaskets! what to do?

Hey guys so my trucks eating coolant. No leaks no drips no smoke. So now I'm stuck on what to do.

So should I

A. Destroke to a 12 valve $5000ish
B. stud it and hope they hold $700ish
C. studs, 190's, SCT and run it $2500ish

I do my own labor and I'm a stickler for everything being perfect.

Re: headgaskets! what to do?

A. Was told by BEANS that a basic 12 valve install will be 5K and if you figure selling all parts that aren't needed I still think I could do it for that.

B. I can get studs for $400 surely I can get gaskets for under $300 I know theres still some other smaller O-rings and gaskets but I can get the complete top end kit for $60

C. Once again sell my spare programmers I have for 6L buy a used SCT, RCD 190's for 1750ish It'd be tight but I think doable

You will need a fuel system to run 190s...Or they wont last long and rcd wont replace injectors that have been starved of fuel!!

Re: headgaskets! what to do?

you don't need a full fuel system you can add a Walbro pump to the stock pump and be fine my truck ran for 3years with 190's and 1year with 200's that way. Cost me about $140 and made 587/1200
