I was thinking about adding the Supertech 75lb valve spring kit sometime soon to my car, and since the cams have to come out in order to install the springs.

I figure I should have easy access to the head bolts at that point during the valve spring install.

Is it possible to remove and replace the stock head bolts one at a time with the ARP head bolts.

I'm thinking if this is an OK way to do things, it would save a lot of time from having to pull the head and not require me to replace the head gasket. And probably most importantly it would make the job a lot easier for an untrained weekend wrench guy like myself.

My car is boosted, so if doing things that way in anyway compromises the integrity of the head gasket's seal, I'll hold off on the head studs until I'm ready to replace the whole head with a ported unit.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

If I was going to replace the head bolts, I'd go that extra step and replace the gasket rather than just the bolts as you are de torquing the head
