Did you go with the 625 arp studs? They are spendy but i heard if you run high boost and dont want to worry about lifting the head they are the way to go.

Yep they are the 625's... After talking it over with Bill @ Source Automotive I decided this would be the best choice for ultimate reliabilty given the boost that the turbos are capable of. I don't want to pull the head again if I can at all help it. They had the best pricing from what I could tell in researching a couple different vendors and they've never steered me wrong in the past.

Didn't have much time tonight so I just got the high pressure lines pulled and the grid heater housing removed. Not worth taking pictures of that. I can already tell I'm not going to enjoy working on the back cylinder...

On a side note, I'm looking for a good source for metal polishing/plating in the midwest. Does anyone have experience with a company that they can vouch for? I'm wanting to dress up a couple of items and turbo housings to match the polished stainless cold piping for the twins. Let me know.

If you dont mind me asking what did you pay for the studs? I think the best i found was like 11 or 1200.

My honest opinion, get rid of the lift, wheels/tires. For something so fresh and clean I really think that it would look better as a sleeper or low profile. I'd say stock suspension/leveling kit on 33's/34's.

$975 listed on their website for the studs. I went back and forth on the stud brand and for me I felt more comfortable with the ARP. Really boiled down to personal preference. There's alot of guys using both with good results.

For now I like the look it's got. I can see some day dropping back to 5 or 6" lift and 35's or 37's on a larger diameter wheel. For now I enjoy the hum of the swampers. My other dodges have 285's and I'd like this truck to be a little different than those.

A little more progress tonight. Should have the valvetrain out Thursday and the head pulled Friday if all goes as planned. Nice stress relief at the end of the day.

A little further...



Parts table getting a little bit more full...
