I'm doing some performance work to the head of my X90 and I need to know if I need to replace my head bolts. On many of the new cars they say the head bolts are for a "one time use" because after they are stretched once they can't give proper torque when resetting them.
Thank you for any help. Jason

I've seen differing opinions both ways..... I've reused on my turbo'd GT motor and it was fine after 30k miles. I probably wouldn't do it again, but it worked for me.

i've seen people reuse them on the g16 16v, shouldn't have an issue.
