Hi, iam having problems understanding the head bolt torque specs, for the stratus. Iam confused with step 2 and 3 which says to torque the bolts to 55 foot pounds for step 2 and again for step 3 does this mean to add 55 foot pounds on 55 foot pounds.

Do you
have the same problem?

No, it means to back off and then re tighten back to 55 lbs
