Well a couple questions.

Are these stretch bolts? And does it seem like a good idea from a maintenance point to retorque them after 165000 miles?

Yes they are stretch bolts, and there is no factory instruction to change them after reusing. My advice is to compare them all and if there are longer ones, replace them. I have reused head bolts several times if the are the same length with no ill effect. If you feel happy spending the money on new ones, do so. I wouldn't bother re-torquing. Leave well alone.

I'm never happy spending money needlessly :lol:


I will leave them be until the head needs to come off. Grazie!
