    I just put the head back on my DOHC ZC block and torqued everthing. Will I have to retorque the head after it's been running for awhile?

    Never needed to on any other car I have replaced head gaskets on, as long as its torqued down right the first time with a torque wrench.

    I always go back and retorque the head after 50 miles or so just to be sure.
