I had them put in when I had my studs put in.
You have to have the heads off to put them in.
For $150 I thought they were a good idea to keep the heads cooler and it was the only time to do them.

They allow better circulation of the coolant throughout the heads to prevent hot spots or coolant flash in the dead areas where the cool normally has no place to go. Long term it is thought to cause warping of the heads. These will allow the coolant to flow through and away from the these dead spots for better cooling.
