If you're about to drop the studs and such in the next few weeks, I'd say you're ok at the moment. With the external oil cooler, which is on my list of mods the first chance I have the money for it. Do it if you can... You remove the interaction of the Oil/Coolant heat exchanger. You can't contaminate your coolant with oil, your oil with coolant, and have a oil cooler to clog up in the first place.

I would recommend you flush and change coolants while your in there. Let us know how it goes.

You should definitely take advantage of this oportunity to change the coolant over to Cat EC-1 rated ELC coolant and regardless of what the shop doing the work says take the head to a machine shop and have them checked and trued. It is money well spent if you blew the head gaskets. As lousy as these heads are finished it is even money well spent on new heads right out of the box too. Most of the deck surfaces are not true and Ford's procedure and spec for checking deck straightness leaves a lot to be desired.

I wouldn't get new heads if I didn't have to. Have them reworked at a good machine shop. As mentioned hardened seats would be a good idea while you're at it. These heads are known to crack around the valve seats. Can't help with machine shops in your area, maybe someone else can chime in. I know Rudy's is in NC but I'm not sure how close.
