6.0 with small cracks in heads

i have a 6.0 that is getting the head gaskets replaced and studs put in. the place did a magnaflux or whatever and said it has very small cracks, but they hold pressure. he talked to two other guys that do alot of 6.0s and they said they put those heads back on all the time and have no problem. he also talked to another place and they said they would never do that. so my question is, do i put those heads back on? this guy says he will work with me if they do go, though he feels pretty confident putting them back on. thanks for the help!

I would replace the heads and not take the chance, my headgaskets and egr cooler had to be replaced at 35k mi. and when the dealer pulled the heads they found hairline cracks so they replaced them!

The shop foreman told me that they find alot of heads with cracks in them and always replace them!!!
