This is scary stuff. I got heads 5 years back that were the "new beefed up castings" and I'm going through coolant and getting high cooling system pressure when boost goes over 10 PSI. The choices are not good. OE heads with a bunch of cracks welded up, iffy cast iron castings, or aluminum. Have these heads I have now "settled" and will be OK if resurfaced and O ringed? DO I need to find a way to put 8 HUGE C clamps on the engine to hold the heads down?
This time I'm fitting later cab mounts. The cab will likely be off a few more times.
Having a 6.0 is somewhat like running a top fuel dragster. Damn it runs good but you know you will be tearing it down after a couple of runs. I wonder if you can put a slipper clutch on a 6.0?
