head stud retorque?

been doing some reading, lots of people say you need to retorque the studs but i dug around in the manual from arp and they say it isnt necessary. i plan to check my valve lash tomorrow so that would be the time if im going to. i installed the studs with arp's lube and over torqued them by 12ft/lbs per arp's recommendation.

just got a call back from arp. they said to not retorque unless the gasket mfg specifically called for it
checked the lash, it was all tight but still in spec. couple thou max change so i guess thats just the head lifting a bit as the power is hit?
