Ordering parts?

Ok so I have to do head gaskets, of course I'm going with studs and I see a lot of kits that are just the head gaskets and studs is that saying you do not need any other gaskets but those? Also while I'm in there what else can I do to prevent this from happening again. I already have an egr delete and dpf delete. I run an h&s mini maxx on the mild setting most of the time and a few times on the wild setting.

Make sure you use OEM gaskets. Also make sure the heads are decked and mgnafluxed.

valve cover and turbo gaskets.

If your headgaskets are still good I would suggest doing them one at a time.

If you pull heads, you have fuel lines and other associated parts to replace as well.

You save at least $300-500 in factory parts if you do studs one at a time.

I have to pull the heads because of blown head gaskets, so doing them one at a time is not an option. I figured I needed all the gaskets but this is my first diesel head gasket job. I just could not understand why they would sell the studs and head gaskets as a kit with out the rest of the gaskets.
