head studs?

i have an o8 kr cc sb 40,000 miles. im running dpf cat delete, sinister egr block off, s&b intake, h&s mini maxx. i run the h&s on the default install on the no power level. the tranny is also set on default, i believe it is the s1 setting.my question is do i need to consider head studs or beefing up the tranny?

I wouldn't worry about it. The tranny should be fine for that power level and as long as your not beating he truck when it's cold the heads should hold just fine. Just watch your coolant level, and you should be fine. Some are daily driving the hot damn 300 hot tune on stock studs. But try to keep a slush fund just in case something does happen. But with it deleted and egr blocked off you should have a healthy running motor!
