well according to my alldata book its 30nm then slacken 90? and tighten again 90? ,---Well in all honesty i cannot see this being done on a assembly line at three engines a minute where they are pulled down at once with one big air driven socket machine so here what i would do and its old school in fact it may even be older than me which i doubt ,anyway all jokes aside i would pull down first with a rachet in sequence and this invoilves the first bolt in the middle then the one above it then do one each side alternativly easy so you start in the middle and work your way out left then right left then right and so on ,after pulling them down with a rachet this will apply about 30/35lbs ,then use the breaker bar and pull them down again till i feel it stretch the bolts but as your not me you do as i say not as i do ,so set torque wrench to 55lbs and pull them down in order again ,then coffee break and thats compulsory now up the setting to 65lbs and pull them down again and that should do you ,you should not need to pull them down after so many miles this is not a 1959 morris a series engine but a VW state of the art piece of kit

Tighten the cylinder head bolts to their final torque
specification in two steps. Use a crisscross sequence starting with the
bolts at the middle of the head and working toward the outer bolts.

Since you didn't say which engine you have, I've pulled torque specs for 3 different engines. Also, since I can't include a diagram showing the relative locations of the numbered head-bolt locations, it would be a good idea for you to purchase a vehicle specific repair guide that will show this info.
Take particular note about the TTY (Torque to Yield) bolts used on 2 of the 3 engines shown. It is said that new head bolts MUST BE USED when head is replaced or re-installed to obtain the proper torque.
B2500 4 Cylinder
Torque sequence: --------- ' 10 6 2 4 8
' front ' ' ' 7 3 1 5 9 ' -----------Step 1: torque in sequence to 51
Ft/Lbs Step 2: torque again in sequence to 51 Ft/Lbs Step 3: final
tighten all bolts an additional 90 to 100 degrees recheck final
torque in sequence *** CAUTION ***engine uses Torque To Yield head
bolts (TTY) that permanently stretch during the initial installation.
New head bolts must be used when cylinder head is replaced or
re-installed to obtain proper torque.
B3000 3.0 6 Cylinder
Torque sequence ---------- ' 6 4 2 8 '
' ' ' 5 1 3 7 ' ---------- Step 1: torque to 59 Ft/Lbs Step 2: loosen
in sequence (1) full turn Step 3: torque to 41 Ft/Lbs Step 4: torque
to 73 Ft/Lbs
B4000 4.0 6 Cylinder
Torque sequence --------- ' 5 1 3 7 ' '
' ' 6 4 2 8 ' --------- Step 1: torque cylinder head bolts in
sequence to 26 Ft/Lbs Step 2: torque cylinder head bolts to 56 Ft/Lbs
Step 3: turn cylinder head bolts in sequence an additional 90-degrees
recheck final torque in sequence *** CAUTION ***engine uses Torque To
Yield head bolts (TTY) that permanently stretch during the initial
installation. New head bolts must be used when cylinder head is
replaced or re-installed to obtain proper torque.
Good luck with this job!
