6.4 Headgasket

Going to throw in elite studs after Christmas and wondering if any of the vendors has the new headgaskets so i don't have to end up paying a lot for the ones from ford. Thanks.

Your going to need more than just head gaskets. Ford says not to reuse fuel lines etc. or it WILL leak and your going to have a headache. View EvilOnes thread about this.

most manufacturers suggest replacing fuel lines on common rail systems whenever they are opened.

does putting them back on mean they are guaranteed to leak? No, and they may not. It's a chance you take.

I can tell you I have done it many different times on engines other than the 6.4 with no problems. Just dont get cut in half by a leaking line.
