Yes, but as the head and studs go through heat cycles they expand/contract/stretch and don’t necessarily settle back exactly as they started when you cranked 105ftlbs to begin with. Re-torquing is always advised.

this makes no sense. To get it hot it has to run, but one wouldn't run it without it being torqued down especially with wet liners. So cold torque the head and use new studs and nuts too. daveP
