Cab's Comin OFF

Well I finally have decided to yank the cab. The hole in the Flex tube is so bad that I can't even build boost anymore half the time.

What else should I be doing while I have this baby apart. It is going to cost $ 3000.00 just to lift the cab at the Dealer! Might as well address anything else whilst I am there!

A buddy of mine that is a diesel tech at Ford quoted me $2400 just in labor for an out of warranty head gasket and stud job. I believe everything to do a gasket job is around $1500....and then Elite studs are like $850.

3,000 for a cab off is a flag. A call to another dealer for a quote would be interesting.
