head studs

so i am currently deployed and am trying to form my battle plan for how to tackle my 6L when i come home i ordered a oil cooler and arp head studs and a new set of gaskets. my current gasket is not blown. so i was curious if anyone out there with more knowledge than myself knows if i can take the old studs out one at a time and replace them with the arp studs torque to spec and move to the next bolt? any knowledge or helpful hint are welcomed...other than paying someone else to do it everyone where i live in colorado wants 2000-2500 just to install the studs.

most people pull the heads and have them decked so they are flat, it's quite labor intensive that is why it costs so much money

yeah most people want max amount of HP they can get out of their motors i want to bullet proof it so i dont need to buy a new truck for many years. my question is can i pull one bolt at a time replacing it immediately with the new arp bolt torqued to spec to take a short cut and not have to pull the head and replace the gasket that is not blown.?

Yes a few have done it. I would not. I would pull the heads and do it right. If the truck is running fine I would just save up for a little longer and do the whole job at once. Thanks for your service to our country BTW.

thers no such thing as a bullet proof motor, even with studs and everything else u can put in/on them, and if ur goin to do a stud job, do it right the first time, it will save u alot of time, money & headache
