Expert:  KALAMYKID replied 11 months ago.

The head bolts should not be retightened. they are torque to yeild head bolts.

What I've heard is that it says 22 ftlbs then turn 90 degrees then loosen all then 22 again then 90 degrees again??
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Not able to see that last reply.
Expert:  KALAMYKID replied 11 months ago.

That is correct, but only if you are using new head bolts. If you try to do that with old head bolts they can and will break.
