When i did the head gasket on my EMS (on the B motor) I torqued to the spec in the haynes manual, ran it, let it cool, and then re torqued to the previous spec again, as advised by scanwest. The guy on the phone had to run out and find someone who knew what a B-motor was and ask him what to do. It was really funny.
The book says torque an additional 90 deg, I don't advise this. just do it to the specified value again, and if you still are concerend, do what moon racer says and again after 1500.

i believe all head bolts to be designed to stretch. i recommend replacement whenever head work is done. head bolts are something that i would never reuse.
someone, please, correct me if i am wrong.

I was wondering if any 1 knew if the head bolts on a 78 99 turbo were stretch bolts?
