Yes you can its a pain on the 6th cylinder. you will also need to grind some of the riser off in the back, one of the stud bolts hits it.

I also had to grind clearance on the rocker housing once the studs were installed. Not a big deal, just enough to clear the rear stud.

i didnt have to grind but i think the cause of this is that the stud wasnt put all the way in before putting on the bolt

So there is enough room to slide them down through the head. So u can pull one bolt at a time then install a stud
Yup i had enough room to get the bottom tap and the head studs in without removing the head..:thumbsup:

Do you need to chase the block threads before installing the new head studs? Does the head stud kit come with a chaser? May do head studs end of this year...

Some chase the threads (I do) some do not. And nope, the tap is not included in the kit.
