I did my head gaskets and took the front clip off. It was maybe a days work to remove the clip and made everything accessible. Also helped by showing 2 surface rust areas that need attention before getting worse that I wouldnt have found without removing the clip. I think I have a bad head rather than gasket failure. There was a bunch of pitting in the #2 cylinder head combustion area, around the valves and at the head gasket. So she got new heads, injectors, CP3, water pump, charge pipes, arp studs and valve cover bolts, turbo rebuild and wetzel wheel, down pipe and turbo horn. Cant wait to fire her up. Hope to have it done this weekend.

I ain't doing it yet. I think if I tore it down that far I would pray my heads were fine and replace injectors instead.

How many miles were you at

I have 170k on mine. The injectors were done by GM at around 90k. The reason that I tore the engine down was because after a short drive I noticed that I was dumping a lot of anti-freeze and the upper radiator hose was rockhard even know the truck was still cold. So I took the top and apart to see if the head gaskets were bad. I didn't see any definite breaks or problems with the head gaskets. Upon inspection of the engine is when I noticed the problems with the head I believe I had a cracked head that was causing boost pressure to bleed over into the cooling system.so I had to get new heads regardless because of the issues with the one head.I got the heads at a pretty good price they were only $525 ea. The reason I did the injectors was because when you take them off all the rust and contamination from the high-pressure lines falls down into the inlet of the injector and fouls it up.The rest I did just because Murphy's Law would kick my ass two weeks later and something that I didn't replace wood break.I got the engine back together as it sits now hopefully I should have it running by Monday.
