6.0 headstuds

How many of you 6.0 owners out there have had the ARP headstuds done? Was under warranty or not? and if not what did it cost you?

I have heard of some dealers putting them in for you if you've blown your hg, but if they won't you can easily put them in yourself. As for cost I have no idea what they would charge you to install...doubt it would be cheap though

I read on another board where a guy was claiming that Ford denied his headgasket claim when they found studs (Not original equipment, technically they can). It's a crock of .... that the studs caused the problem, but just be aware.

there is usually a reason they want to install studs(perf mods,heavy loads)cause the average joe who uses his sikltr for commuting probably won't need them!(the studs have more clamping force to hold in the extra cyl press)


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.

the 6.0 head studs are not strong enough from the factory, plus they could have put a couple more in there, once you start adding power these motor it puts alot of stress on the already weak stubs and possibly breaking them or losing the head gasket seal. either way the arp studs are a must if you are adding power to the 6.0

They come with head bolts from the factory, not studs

I just got a quote from a Ford Tech who does it on the side. He charges $2800 to do the studs on my 03 Excursion. I decided to wait. I'm not having any problems but thought I would get it done anyway but not at that price.
