I guess everyone has an opinion on this. I have to say I agree with Snowman on most of this. I always use the heat the stud method and as I recall this is also the technique described in Bruce Andersons book. There is a good article on this very subject in the current issue of Grassroots Motorsports. While they don't get everything right in every article they recommend heating till dull red and then letting cool slightly berfore applying torque and I agree with the reasoning they present.

I'm sure both methods have merit but the heat the stud method is much easier and safer in my opinion.
