Many of the 6.0's we get here in the shop are already experiencing a head gasket failure. we do on occasion get one's in which the owner is being proactive. out of these several 6.0's, only one had head gaskets in which the fire ring material was fully intact on every layer, top and bottom but it also had less than 20k on the clock.
you could, and several people have done stud installs this way without any issue, SO FAR. I have many times loosened one head bolt and heard the MLS head gasket "crackle". this means the gasket seal had been broken. the chances of that not becoming a future issue-leak, are very slim.
In my 27 years as a professional diesel tech, I had never heard of such a procedure until I joined the org. I would not advise doing the job this way.
