You shouldnt have to. Unless you wanna pull the cab just to check some bolts. ARP is very particular with the Torque specs. The bolts even come with a special additive to either apply to the threads, or put inside the holes in the head to ensure the ft/lbs are exact. It takes all of the impurities out, such as dust, lubricant, microscopic metal shavings. Plus I believe its 245 ft/lbs on the final stage. I think your good.
