hey tech i just replaced the head gasket in my 740t. i had the head milled and all that. i was wondering in on of the posts i just read final torque is (130 deg.) the new head bolt kit i got did not have this spec it was ( 20nm 15ft lbs,60nm 45ftlbs, relax for 30 min, 110nm 80ftlbs, loosen then tighten to 110nm 80ftlbs again) i did this and started and ran engine without issue, got engine up to operating temp for 10 min then drove about 5 min. all seems ok... should i be concerned on the different specs? this is my daily driver and goes about 300 mi a week?

You should be fine.

I think I have even different specs than both you said.
I have 15,45, and 90 degrees.

You should be fine.
