Head replacment

I hope everyone is well and enjoying their 986s . Me not so much .I bought an RND motor a few years ago . 3 years ago and about 30k .Due to an oil pressure issue on the original motor . And I'm not to impressed with RND's work. Any way ,can the heads on these cars be replaced with the engine in the car ? I know I going to get the don't be lazy pull the motor .I am more interested in a hassle free answers . Please .Is it psychically possible .And if it is and I wished to install am ARP head bolt kit is there enough room to get the head over the studs.Thank you all .You all have been a great help and I have learned a lot from all of help I have been given on this site . Thank you all. I wish you all well..!

If you are going to use ARP head studs, the answer is no, you cannot get the cylinder head back on with the engine in the car and the studs installed.
