i agree with torquing in steps, however, torquing to an amount of a turn i disagree with, it would result in uneven final torques, as well the fact that you might turn one to 85* and the next to 95*, your estimating the 90* turn, unless there's anyone here whose used a right angle or protractor to measure it exactly?
When I did my head over christmas, I used a degree gauge - looks like a round indicator that fits inline with your socket extension - setup the arm against a fixed object, setup the indicator to zero, tighten bolt to 90 degrees - a bit slow, but accurate.
The torque wrench is calibrated every 12 months, so that was pretty accurate as well . . . .
