The original question:
do you reuse the old head bolts
3 times, after re-using 3 times I would replace the bolts.
Refer to the Subaru manual for tightening specs, they are different from Haynes, and turbo motors are a different spec from non-turbo motors.

I re-used the headbolts on my '98 2.5L. In fact, they were some of the cleanest looking bolts I've ever seen. Again, I'm used to seeing steel bolts in steel blocks, and I often see carbon crust, oil, and rust on the headbolts. The Subi bolts looked great.

The torque procedure was revised for some engines; I've seen articles on endwrench.com about it.

Hi This is Jerry, i have a 96 imperza 2.2 engine and i am replacing the head gaskets. My question is do you reuse the old head bolts or do you get new head bolts. Let me know Thanks Jerry
are you removing the engine to do the job?
