    If you can manage to keep the tune setting low you can have a very reliable truck as is.
    I can't leave the tune setting low!

    LOL...neither can I, Cody.

    I'm gonna go ahead with the transmission upgrade from BD Diesel & get a deeper pan.

    I talked to the shop owner this morning and he will do the head studs if I want them done but doesn't think I need 'em as he is certain the OEM studs were upgraded for the 2014 and up trucks. He has done a LOT of trucks and said he hasn't had any newer Cummins powered trucks come back with head stud problems.

    No upgrades to the head studs, they are the same as the previous 6.7's. The tuning is what got the upgrade, bad tuning was the cause of most of the head gaskets failures on previous year trucks. I have yet to hear of a head gasket failure with any one running EFI live and I know quiet a few.

    With EFI live tuners have access to a lot more parameters and a reputable tuner can keep the drive pressure's under control preventing the head from lifting.

    There are three other tuned Rams in our neighborhood + we have several visitors from time to time that own them too. Neighborhood doesn't seem to mind... LOL
