Crest Cadillac Using Stud Repair?

I’m sure that Bruce can verify this.

Other sites have mentioned that Crest Cadillac in Plano Texas has now performed there first head gasket repair using Jakes’ stud kit.

The car was a 2001 Deville, and the mechanic was Gus.

I guess my question for Bruce is, was this simply a one off repair due to the customer’s insistence on studs, or, is Plano considering changing from the approved timesert procedure?

Certainly I can't speak for Crest, but it is interesting and I can ask them about it the next time I get by there (hopefully not soon, knock on wood).

new headbolts and timeserts are $300 or so. of course dealer gets headbolts at cost. than charges customer standard markup. studs are $550? i wonder if total fix is similar when all is said and done.
