6.0L head studs

O.K. Betsie is 7 years old with 340K km and still runs like a top. I am the 2nd owner how can i tell if the head studs/Gasket have been done before I put some money into more boost?

I'm itching to get some more juice outa her.

Stock, it's head bolts, not studs so even if you can confirm gaskets have been done, you need to confirm that the bolts were replaced with the ARP studs because just replacing bolts will not put the 6.0L up the challenge of being modified. If your ready to play, give 'er, but be ready to pay, things may start happening while your having fun that could cost some coin.
Keep us informed of what you do, it will be interesting!

I guess the only way would be to pop a valve cover off and take a look see.
