Not sure off the top of my head, I'd look in a Bently, I can do it tonight when I'm home, but with stretch bolts no warm retightening should be performed.

DO NOT retighten another 1/4 turn after warm, and yet _another_ 1/4 turn after 1k miles unless you like snapping headbolts off or worse, crushing your head (I've seen it happen).
