head bolt retorque?

My motor has about 20k on it since the rebuild. I am upgrading my turbo to a 38r, should i go over all the head bolts while i am doing the turbo swap?

no, your just swapping turbos... right? You dont even have to remove valve covers for turbo swap...

What is your thought process here?

I just figured it wouldnt hurt to check and make sure they were at the right torque. Exspecially since this was rebuilt not that long ago
