I'd try getting the broken studs out without removing the heads first.
Rather hard in my opinion to not disturb the cylinder when pulling the heads. I didn't do mine and developed a base gasket leak so I had to pull everything to simply replace the base gasket.

I never removed the wrist pins, I was able to slip a ring compressor over the piston and slide the cylinder over the piston and rings.
