Leave the stock studs alone. They do not pull out like the stock studs on the old heads do.
They are fine as is for most hi perf street applcations. even with high perf springs.
Just use a self guided style rocker arm ( stock or aftermarket)

The risk of breaking the the stud boss by trying to pull them out exceeds the
preceived benefit of a screw in stud.
Again, these stock pressed in studs do not cause the issues that the old heads did.

What cam and rockers are you using. You are probabily getting all carried away for a bunch of nothing.
