No sorry you misunderstood.

I have new gaskets of course and after the first heat cycle I'm asking if people are re-torquing the head bolts or not.

Not a stupid question.

I believe the 16 tappets are 33mm wide and 8v 35mm. Be careful.

The BGA number for the 33 16v 1990-1994/5 is HL6391 (33 mm wide).

HL6390 for 8v. 35 mm.
Are you sure?

Yes!
