if your boostin, it might not be a must, but its a great safeguard. Your pretty much saving yourself a blown HG. I got my set for $110 and it was worth every penny

Why do you take the head off so much?? Even with ARP's I wouldnt RE-use them more than once

i got a set of ARP head studs and i used them in my LS/Vtec build with B16 internals, and when i tore off the head to fix a leaking head gasket, it stripped out the threads on the #2 head stud that you torque down. I was VERY dissatified with my experience with them!
