I've had mine removed by Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM). Of course, it's best if the heads are off and you can take them in to a shop that specilizes in this. That's what I did. But even if the engine is assembled (but the engine is out), you can invert it and have a shop EDM them out of there. So there are several solutions available. With EDM, it removes the stud and leaves the aluminum alone, so you can just screw in new studs with no inserts or other hardware. As I recall, the cost was quite reasonable -- like maybe $100 to do several studs.
