Thoughts on EM stud replacement

Looking for wisdom from the list . . . yesterday I pulled the exhaust
manifold off of an '87 MC motor and didn't have any broken studs except
for the two that were already gone when I got there.  

(Yes, that ammonia trick really does work!)

Now here's the question, the engine is out of the car on a stand where I
have all sorts of room to work on it.  Since this is the easiest that
it's ever going to get, should I go ahead and replace _all_ the EM studs
with new (hopefully stronger) studs, or only replace the two that I will
have to EZ-out?
