John......still have the X and no problems. Best SUV I have ever owned and I had 5 Chevys prior. I have a lot invested in the X but I have it the way I want it. Now I just have to stop some idiot from hitting it.
Anyway, have almost 25,000 miles on the X since 4/09 when I installed the studs and did not change the HGs. I also installed the bullet proof EGR cooler at the same time. Still had a slight puking problem but no exhaust gas detected in the coolant as was present prior to the stud install. The puking was due to the oil cooler HX being restricted. I changed the oil cooler HX in 12/09 with no subsequent puking problems.
Just curious if all is still good with your Ex?

I made a long blower out of a brake line to clean out the hole. It's not like the holes are dirty but generally have a bit of oil in them so I blow them out then load up the hole with brake clean. Let it sit for second put the long blower in the hole cover with rag and blow till dry. Repeat if required.
Awesome, got driver side done yesterday. Even with lifting tranny a couple inches and removing bolts on driver side, had to massage firewall a little. No biggie cant see anyway. What a relief when stud slid in.
