    I was going to retorque the head bolts but it is not that easy. The book says to torque and then turn bolt 90 degrees. I would think I would have to loosen the bolts first? I passed on retorqueing the bolts.

    Kurt,
    Can you retorque the head bolts without removing the cams?

    I forgot to look. After I read how to torque the bolts, I just put the valve cover on and went to work on getting the intake chamber and EGR off. I then spent the day cleaning out all the gunk. I should of got a case of carb cleaner.
