Did mine that way about 2 years & 30k, with no issues. It is the risky way of doing the studs.

Anyway, have almost 25,000 miles on the X since 4/09 when I installed the studs and did not change the HGs. I also installed the bullet proof EGR cooler at the same time. Still had a slight puking problem but no exhaust gas detected in the coolant as was present prior to the stud install. The puking was due to the oil cooler HX being restricted. I changed the oil cooler HX in 12/09 with no subsequent puking problems.

Just curious if all is still good with your Ex?

What was the mileage on your Ex when you installed the studs and did you have any signs of puking?

Thank you for the response!

So for those of you who have done it the dsmmh way, how did you clean the treads in the heads prior to installing the studs?

I made a long blower out of a brake line to clean out the hole. It's not like the holes are dirty but generally have a bit of oil in them so I blow them out then load up the hole with brake clean. Let it sit for second put the long blower in the hole cover with rag and blow till dry. Repeat if required.

You shouldn't have to retorque studs but if you do,then you do them ALL.

You can replace the bolt with studs without pulling oil rails, however cant get to smaller bolts on top. I was just wondering if it was necessary to retorque small bolts.

Awesome, got driver side done yesterday. Even with lifting tranny a couple inches and removing bolts on driver side, had to massage firewall a little. No biggie cant see anyway. What a relief when stud slid in.

Did you still remove everything that original poster did, like the whole radiator, fan, intake manifold?
