Swapping Heads

What all gaskets are needed to swap heads? I will be using factory gaskets and H11's that have been torqued once. Is a re-torque going to be necessary? Thanks.

Re: Swapping Heads

Since you will be disturbing the gaskets yes if you do the studs one at a time,
With the originals undisturbed no imho.

Re: Swapping Heads

I have some heads I bought from Danny (imelmo) and am wanting to swap them on. That is why I'll have to remove the heads.

Re: Swapping Heads

Yes, they are the super ported heads with dual valve springs and the intakes are coated as well.
