Just got my truck back from fixing the head and putting a new gasket in like it should have been done in the first place. Adjusted the valves to stock specs adjusted the timing to 19* and backed the boost down to 50lbs. Truck runs great for now hopefully I won't have to put anymore money into it after this $1100 worth I just spent on the head that was completely avoidable if the guy who pulled the head the first time to install studs would have put a new head gasket in then.

Yeah it was a crummy deal. He knew he messed up and won't do anything to make it right. It just really sucks right now cause a week ago my wife let me know we are expecting twins as in twin babies and not turbos!!!! Which I'm really excited about. Only thing is, daycare is going to cost $15,000 a year. WOW!!!! So that $1100 that could have been avoided is like salt in an opened wound.
