head stud retorque

Want to do head studs in my engine before running bigger turbo (never broke anything or broke down yet, and like to bug the s**t out my dodge buddies about that). So is best to retorque studs or are there some that you don't and if you do, do you have to remove your injectors for access?

You don't have to but if you wanted to do it anyway you don't have to remove the injectors, just rotate them enough to get to the nut under the injector.

Re: head stud retorque

You only need to retorque fire-rings, stock HG's don't need a retorque.

Do you just twist them around? Does that damage the o rings?
thanks...

For stock HG's? It won't hurt, but due to the design of the stock HG it won't compress anymore than it does on the initial torque.

Fire rings are a different story.

Re: head stud retorque

On firerings I've had to retorque 5 or 6 times on some applications. Fire rings I just keep retorqueing until I don't get anymore movement.
