  As Brian said, they should come with torque specs.  I was 
thinking Raceware torqued to 58lbs but not sure, just a little 
less than OEM 11mm studs.  I don't fret about a couple extra 
lbs though.  They also say to use a teflon based thread sealant 
for the studs to block threads, motor oil for the nut to stud 
  Retorque is dictated by the head gasket not the bolts.  I'd 
still torque, warm up and retorque, drive 600 miles and retorque 
but no loosening on any of those.  I always check the torque 
when I check valves too.  Doesn't hurt.
