Re: price for head stud install

Depends where you live and if you go to a dealership or a diesel shop.

In general, dealerships in major cities will charge you for a full headgasket job, which will run between $3,000 and $4,000. If you're in more rural areas, you can get them done for under $3,000.

Diesel shops have been known to charge less, bottoming out at about $2,000.

I can get the job done with ARP's and an EGR delete set up for 2K here in Salem, OR. from the dealership (family owned-small operation with in house diesel shop and certified mechs) where I bought my truck from.

I think I spent around $2000 with doing the install myself. That includes updated fittings, studs, gaskets, oil cooler rebuild, EGR delete, turbo recondition, etc.
