You will find with the SUPERTEC head studs that the heads will have far less tendency to lift [separate from the cylinders] and the flame rings are designed to hold compression when the heads lift. If you plan to make less than 500 hp I would say no flame rings are necessary.
That said , for us flame rings are cheap insurance. For you the cost might make flame rings impractical.
