I believe so, you can get a dowel pin converter kit on eBay so new heads fit your 18mm dowels. Someone told me brand new heads from Ford come with the dowel pin converter also.

Any heads you buy from ford now will be 05+ heads but will come with adapters for 03-04 blocks. Yes they will work but you need the dowels to step them.

i recently just redid a stud jub someone else did in a bone stock 6.0 with black onxy gaskets,they failed less than 6 months after.oem gaskets get the job done if you have a good surface and prep the block properly.

Why the Hell would u install black onyx on them after all the responses? WTF?
Obviously you didn't read my post (arps + stock gaskets I guess)

Second this is on a buddies truck and I was posting the question for him about heads (although I did not specify not that it really matters hence the were, as in they were going to put black onyx gaskets.) Like I said this is not for my truck, mine is running fine. Thanks everyone for the responses, except the duesh response.

just for a lil input my black onyx gaskets held for right at 20k miles that included towing the race truck to pheonix last year for the season opener, 1300 miles on a race tune and it performed perfectly... 2 months later playing around on the street in my other race tune, which i had run many times on factory headbolts and gaskets before the black onyx with arp's i blew them.... never crossed 30 psi..... i will be redoing it with factory gaskets and upgrading to 175's next month w/e i manage to get some time off work..... factory hg's ftmfw
