Angry Blown Again!!!

WTF? Blown head gaskets again?!? I though I did the things I was "supposed" to do the first time...Head studs and EGR delete.

Now this one is out of pocket.

Any advice on any additional steps to take this time?
Can I reuse the ARP studs?
Anything else I should do while the engine is out again?

Have the heads decked by a quality machine shop. This is more than likely the problem and why you are replacing again.

Och man that sucks. Did you have the engine and heads decked? If not, from what I understand, Ford's talorances are very minimal at best. So you would have to have a machine shop deck them so that they are flat and true all the way and yes you can reuse the head studs. Thats not a problem. I think that decking the block will fix the problem.

Yes the heads need to be milled. They should be milled any time you take them off. I know there isnt a lot of room for play so have the machine shop make sure they are still within ford specs.
