If you plan on taking Your HP far enough to need headstuds your gonna need Forged rods also.

My thought would be keep the studs and set them to the side along with the injectors till you have HP and Torque goal in mind, then make the fuel system and other preps to supply your goal..:thumbsup.. Keep us updated and good luck..:happymugs

What other mods do you have and how far do you want to go? As stated earlier if you want longevity and HP / TQ you will need to think about some rods.

Stage 2's will have to be detuned (IMHO) to help your PMR's to stay inside the block. Who is your tuner?

IMHO with a stock turbo and no plans on upgrading it you don't need studs in a 7.3. If you plan on upgrading to a 38R or H2E I would go ahead and put the studs in.

Do you have a regulated return? If not that would be a great addition to what you are doing. Call Dennis at ITP for the return and tell him I sent you.

Do you have Gauges?
