Im not exactly sure, A buddy of mine recommended me to a Local Company that specializes in Cummins High-Performance Engine Building and parts so im going to take it to them and let them do the work....I just dont wanna take the chance of losing a headgasket with the amount of fuel and boost im gonna have before I get the motor setup and ready for the install in the truck...dont wanna put it in then have to take it back out cause the headgasket let go ( i wont lie i gotta bit of a lead foot at times but not all the time...i know how to control it... )

well, if the block is out and getting worked. i would put the rings on the block. that way if you warp the head it can be resurfed. that way you want messup the rings.
