F-250 6.0 head gasket

It looks like my 04 has blown a head gasket.White smoke in exhaust and oil is milky. Erg is deleted and no tunes and no hard pulling.Only made it to 120K miles. How much am I looking at to replace gaskets and add studs. Calling TRM on Tuesday, hopefully he can look at it soon.

Don't know how much, but that is a necessity on a 6.0L Stroke. May want to have the injectors tested while you're in there.

My guess is a bout a $1,200-$1500 if nothings cracked (head) but, I do know it's worth every penny if your planning to keep her. My mechanic buys every one he can get and put them up (He says once they're "bullet proofed can't beat em)".

TRM is good - father in law is the owner.

You made it farther than my 06 did. I sold mine and never looked back.
