Doesnt specify if these are torque to yield, I recommend replacing them either way. This is the specs on torque

Cylinder Head Bolts-Long

First pass 63 Nm (46 ft lb)

Second pass 90

Cylinder Head Bolts-Short

First pass 58 Nm (43 ft lb)

Second pass 90

Also, torque from the center outwards. Start with the middle, and work your way torwards both ends evenly.
