Re-torque when your motor is cold!, hot metal expands, when it cools things move/shrink.
Why risk having to do something twice when if you wait a couple of hours or so longer, or just plan to do it first thing in the morning you could save yourself a bunch of aggro:confused013:
Cold. All the torque settings and the calculations behind it are at room temperature.
