Re-torque ARP's???

I am installing ARP studs with Victor Onyx gaskets. I have heard mixed answers on re-torquing the studs. So, should I re-torque or not worry about it?

Can't hurt, but it is a chore to do on a 6.0. I suggest torque them and at least leave it sit over night and hit em once again, you will get a little out of them. Would not even hurt to hit them once more after you get home from work the next day(I have to work, so I assume you do to).

Glad you listened, you really get closer to the torque value and achieve even clamping force doing as I suggested. Feel free to PM me with any other questions or problems that arise, and at the risk of sounding arrogant(my worst nightmare), I know 6.0's very well.
