This reminds me of a time when a friend shows at my place and says "I need a new throw-out bearing". I promptly tell him to pick up a new clutch and pressure plate too. He then tells me he only wants the bearing replaced. So, stupid me, I take it apart for him and I show him that the pressure plate is gouged from the worn bearing. He doesn't care and tells me to put it together like that. A week later he comes back with the same problem. I then told him where to go!

I don't mean to be negative. Some jobs just aren't meant to be done part way. If you can't afford to do it right, it's best to wait until you can or you risk spending more than you have to.
Don't do part of the job and leave the important parts out. One of the issues Ive noticed is guys pullin their heads slappin a new set of gaskets n studs in but don't send the heads out for pressure testing etc. Im a big believer that the negative rep this engine has gotten are due to half assed mechanics. My 03 that Ive had since new has had a ton of mods, stacked tuners and a water/meth kit on for some reason unknown to me it never blew a head gasket. Then theres the guys that barely drive it n theyre spending thousands. Do it right or don't do it at all. Just my 2 cents

Finally. Someone else gets it. Lol
I have a buddy who has a buddy of his do all the work on his truck. This other guy is a so called mobile mechanic and only runs 6.0's. He told my buddy that he's okay running ford gold coolant...... nuff said.
I think he's seeing the light with what I'm telling him though.
He's also running a tune on factory head bolts, and not monitoring temps..... ay, dios mio.
Do you have any threads anywhere with more info on mods you've done?
