Since you have the 0331, you want to be absolutely sure it is still good. If I take the time and effort to remove the head to install a head gasket, I want to be sure I don't have to repeat myself in a few weeks or months if the head turns out to be cracked. My time is worth money, and I would rather be on the trails than in the garage, so spending a few dollars on a test is worth it to me.
I have an 0331 head on my 2000 and a spare 1999 head in the garage. If I have any head or gasket issues I am going to do the head and exhaust manifold swap and be done with the potential 0331 problems.
