Dropped the truck off at PowerStrokeMagic in Houston. I feel like a parent with a missing child. I'm trusting TJ with my baby!! lol

He'll be doing:

Full Headstud Job
EGR Delete
Oil Cooler
Updated Turbo Feed Line
Updated Turbo Drain Tube
Updated STC
6.4 Banjo Bolts
MBRP 4" TB Exhaust
Water Pump (probably)

Its been a long time coming, the ECT/EOT Delta was creeping up, so I decided it was time. I'm looking forward to getting it back.

Yes, heads checked out fine.

I would say it was well worth it. Here is when I took it over (crappy cell pic):



And here is the ride home today, (same speed, same road) MUCH better!!:

dang! kudos to that machine shop! mine normally take me a week or so when i do one. its not hard to do really if you had the heads there i could do it in the same amount of time but to ship them out and get it back and have it all done that fast is amazing!

I know exactly how you feel. I typically only drive my truck on weekends, but I'm still uncomfortable when it's not parked in my driveway. It's my baby.
