Question about 1992 Audi 80
It's always good practice to have the head skimmed. I would do it. As for the torque specs I'll have to look into that cause it doesn't show in my database.

If you overheat an engine with a cast iron block and an aluminium head, they will expand at different rates as they have different expansion coefficients. This will usually cause separation of the gasket and if you are losing coolant, it's a near certainty. The answer is a new gasket (pennies) plus a head skim at a local engineering shop, $100 or so (otherwise it won't seal again). You need a torque wrench and a workshop manual to check the torque settings and slackening/tightening order if doing it yourself, otherwise you'll cause further warping of the head. If the head isn't skimmed, it will go again after 50 miles or so.
