Do I need new head bolts?

I will soon be refitting my EFI cylinder heads.
Do I need to buy new head bolts or can I reuse my exiting ones?
How many times can they / should they be used :dunno: ?

Many thanks,

Buy new ones. They stretch and can only be used once.
No, dont do that! The composite gasket has no provision for the last row of 4 bolts, this is done on purpose to reduce leaks. Follow the torque values here: Torque_9224_40_46.html
