From what I have read yes it can be done people on here have done it. People frown upon it cause you dont know how your current headgaskets are and you could go through all the work and have bad head gaskets.

I've heard of people doing this and end up blowing HG's anyway. Not a good idea from what I've read. If your HG's are already gone, the studs won't do any good. Usually puking out the degass bottle is the tell tale sign. This can also be caused by egr cooler which yours has been deleted. Could be caused by oil cooler. If your not puking, I wouldnt worry about it unless you want to do it for preventative measure or for added power. If your gonna do it, do it right and pull the heads get them checked and put in new gaskets.

One of the main downfalls of this method is you aren't able to have you heads machined to be completely flat. If they aren't perfect and you stud it anyway, the gaskets can still blow. Alot of people who took the heads off and did studs but didn't machine them are still blowing gaskets.

Grab a drink and read this Catalina Wine Mixer or how a below-average diesel mechanic poser can successfully p

He did a great write up with pictures.

dead giveaways are puking coolant out of the degas bottle. white smoke at idle. tea kettle type whistle sound.

the easiest test to pretty much find out is a cooling system pressure test (but the results can also be the same if the egr cooler is blown) basically if the psi is over a certain number then that tells you somethings not right
