are head studs reusable

A couple weeks ago my turbo over boosted and would not come down at first. The end result is I think my head gasket(s) blew again. There is the chance that the rad cap went bad but it is spewing anti from the degas again. Checked it in the morning when cold before first start and there was pressure still in the bottle.

So if I did blow are the studs reusable. My heads were decked last time so I am not happy about this!

ARPs are reusable but if you warped some stuff who knows if you damaged some of them..

Ya, he blew a headgasket. Unless he got REAL lucky and theres nothing wrong with them somehow, then I guess go for it. I wouldnt, but thats just me.

H11's are, but I dunno what extent I would reuse ARP's...H11's are the highest rated studs you can get. I don't think it's worth it, but that's just me (Reusing ARP's). If you want to be sure, H11's all the way or new ARP's to boot.

guess it is nime to start saving money.....again.

I know they blew due to the turbo but it makes me question if I did something wrong since i did it on my own. I have a good mechanical background but not with diesels. It barely lasted 10k miles.

Maybe time to get rid of her!

I have been building engines for years and so has the ASE certified tec that helped me with the heads. So I think I know what I am doing when it comes to that part.
