I am looking for an installer to install my ARP head studs, gaskets and check the planing of the heads. Dealer wants $3,500 and I believe Hallas wants about $2,600.

Just looking to see if someone knows if there is a better deal out there. Obviously looking for a reputable installer.

Thanks,
Bob

I don't know of a better deal, but from what I've heard, I'd definately trust Mike Hallas to do it. I talked with a guy from Diesel Equipment in Potterville about doing it last year, including an egr delete it was going to be $2500-2600. However the guy hadn't done a 6.0l before but had heard he needed to lift the cab. I'm sure there are others out there, but I believe Mike has a good reputation.

Theres also Mikes Diesel performance down in Chelsea. Great guy to deal with and does great work.

Hallas would also get my vote, two mikes that are very friendly and very helpful.

That's who I mentioned also, so since I spoke to them last year, they must have started doing the 6.0l.

Mike, aka sick97psd, aka Mike's Diesel Performance, would probably handle it on the weekend, which means possibly having your truck during the week for run arounds.

If it makes you feel any better. My 09 is having the entire fuel system replaced and asked them to change the studs while they are there. with me giving them the studs, they still want 1100 to put them in.

actually yes, ive been there too and seen a few cabs sitting in the air lately (including the owners truck) to get studs and egr delete kit.

i think its called legendary performance in kzoo does really good work too.
