    Lol if your buddy is “continually” working on a 6.0 means you don’t know how to work on a 6.0 lol they don’t require continuous work

  • xx.runaway

    You need to check lash. Doesnt matter if you put all rockers back in the same place. The head was clamped down more on the block with those studs installed because they are torqued more than factory, they squish the head gasket more. Which now means all valve lash is gonna be off. Also, shoud have used lube on the threads of the studs. The studs probably aren't at true torque because of that.


    You could've saved yourself around $350 if you wouldve bought "xotic performance" head studs. Exact same tensile strength, lifetime warranty at half the cost.

    Why would you back off the stud that’s dumb

    • Monster RAM

      Because if you bottom out the stud, then proceed to do 3 torque sequences up to 150 ft/lbs, you can drive the stud into the block and crack it. If it wasn't necessary, ARP wouldn't tell you to do this in the directions. 🧐

    Stuff absolutely adds up. I’ve saved well over 20k just over the last 5 years or so doing things my self. That’s 20k I can now use to, fund more mods, more tools, or put towards another vehicle, a new shop, whatever. Either way that 20k makes me one happy camper lol. Think about it just one 8-10 hr job you do yourself that’s about 1k saved. Or if you really like to get your hands dirty like me, learn how to rebuild your own engines & transmissions. You’ll easily save thousands each one you do.

      Agree fully with 6door 6four; not pulling heads and checking them and installing new gaskets will basically render your install a practice run for the next time when you pull the heads and have them check and install new gaskets Cab on is a PIA but can be done with some work if you have no ability to lift cab

    • 6door 6four
      6door 6four

      Do not do your 6oh studs like this 6.0 can have cracked heads often or the headgaskets are near failing only proper way on a powerstroke is to pull the heads and send them out easy enough job for anyone to do if you have a little mechanical knowledge some diy guys do it cab on I personally pulled the cab when I did my dads as we have a hoist but it is not needed

    Missed some steps. Should have.... - Cleaned out the holes prior to installing the studs. - Used ARP assembly lube. - Checked valve lash after you installed the rockers.

    • xx.runaway

      @Brendan He definitely only put lube on the nuts and washers. If he did put lube on the stud itself it wasn't nearly enough. Lube the hell outa the threads on the studs, the washers and nuts. That's the only way you will ever get true torque on the studs. And big mistake not checking lash.

    • Brendan

      he used the lube. you can see it on one of the close up shots. but yes. he needs to check lash cold, then lash hot. also needs to do a hot retorque on the studs.

    • mathew b
      mathew b

      @Monster RAM i guess I'm just use to older cummins where there is a chance for the head to not seat correctly even when doing them in order one at a time it might just be a peace of mind type of thing plus you can inspect the underside of the head and make sure its holding up and no worries handing the extra power

    • Monster RAM
      Monster RAM

      @mathew b Changing out the HG isn't necessary on trucks with Multi Layered Steel HGs. And there are no drawbacks with replacing the bolts them one at a time, in proper sequence, as long as the HG isn't compromised in the first place. All you do is save yourself a bunch of time and money.

    • mathew b
      mathew b

      @Ellis stock head studs are known to stretch over time with boost... i personally would have done the head gasket just to save some of the headache later on down the road

    • Ellis

      @Team Brahma Ah thanks. So the concern is the stock head studs breaking with a twin turbo?

    • Team Brahma
      Team Brahma

      Replacing the standard head bolts/studs with ARP's is a common supporting mod for doing things like the twin-turbo setup he's adding. Keeps the head from lifting and causing head gasket issues.

      @John Stangl still every time you take rocker arms or injectors out you should check your lashings

    • John Stangl

      im guessing its bc the engine wasnt turned over at all and he kept the rockers in order so the lash is the same

    Should of bought a 12 point inpact socket cause the chrome ones flex too much and dont get a proper torque

    • ericg4x4

      You do realize that chrome sockets are harder than impact sockets? That’s why they tend to crack when used with an impact. Also, you don’t lose torque with a socket flexing, steady force applied through a manual torque wrench is not affected by flex. Impact torque is affected by flex. Simple physics, it’s amazing!👏
