Stud mounts are stronger for higher horsepower

No, pedestals you have to use shims and make sure everything is in spec once its torqued down.

Well I hope they're ok because if you didn't get them setup properly you'll have more valvetrain wear and probably leaving power on the table.

Was about 1500 miles ago when I had my heads rebuilt. Just torqued and it ran like a champ, when I rebuilt my top end again about 1k miles ago (due to cracked lower intake) the valvetrain seemed A-ok

agreed again.

and you shouldn't skip this step, just because the engine will run doesn't mean you have proper valve train geometry. How do I know?

because I tore up a set of new heads this way, burning oil at 8K miles on the heads. that is a worst case senario though, most of the time you will just be leaving alot of power on the table and kill longevity.
