aftermarket head studs. Easy?

Has anyone installed APR head studs themselves? Do they drop through the heads or do the heads have to be pulled right out? Can I keep the factory gasket or do I have to go after market there too?(I've heard of those fire ring's, but that's alot of $$$! Especially with the core charge!)

Easy would depend on what equiptment you have at your disposal, like a hoist lift, for example.

It can be easy, as Dennis said, if you have the right equipment.

The heads need to come off and you need to replace the gaskets and have the heads magnafluxed for cracks and checked for flatness.

I've already had the head gasket done once and I only hope the last time I do it will be the upgrade. I have access to a machine shop, but I don't want to take off too much.(I don't know how, but my buddies should) What about the gasket?

Hey Adam, could you jump over to my other thread about injectors? I guess you're the man to talk to.
