I wouldn't change head studs for no reason but the lowers should be inspected / checked for broken studs. I would install carrera tensioners as soon as I could for peace of mind since a failure can do alot of internal damage and the originals do fail. I'm not sure of the cost. How's the oil consumption? Leakdown? Those will tell you about the internals and whether it needs any work. I wouldn't do a top end unless there was some good reason.
