I'l tell ya in a few weeks. I just bought a stretch gauge and I haven't used it yet.

I've always torqued the bolts 10ft/lb over spec and let them sit like that until I build the engine anyway. I couldn't tell you if it made a difference, that's just what my gramps told me to do and we never lost one of his engines from a bolt failure.
